About

A show designed to support KS4 English students in understanding and exploring the text. Also perfect for KS4 and KS5 drama students to experience a live performance.

A comedy with all the drama left in! Set against the backdrop of a charity organisation. The Catherstone Risdake Association Players are attempting to extort donations from their adoring local community to raise funds for Jekyll and Hyde. This includes their lavish sets, high profile actors and a 'business trip' to the Bahamas. But until such funding, they must creatively tell the tale of Dr Henry Jekyll. Journey with this experimental scientist as he fashions a controversial concoction that transforms him not only into an evil man but a vile monster!

Told through the eyes of Gabrielle Utterson, this show embraces the comedic magic of theatre in a fast-paced spin whilst staying faithful to the original text. A perfect introduction to the text or engaging revision tool, giving learners a clear perceptiveness of the whole text. 

 

Encourage your students to find new ways to evaluate the text critically and support this with appropriate textual references through included Question and Answer sessions with the professional actors. Many of whom have in-depth knowledge and understanding of the novella.
