Jekyll & Hyde show

ROBERT Louis Stevenson’s classic ‘Jekyll & Hyde’ will be performed at the Riverhead Theatre in Louth this week.

The play’s run at the theatre began earlier this week - but more performances are lined-up for tonight (Wednesday), Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

“In Robert Louis Stevenson’s famous story, Dr Jekyll is on the brink of discovering the key to man’s inner reality, and experimenting on himself, finds to his delight that his formula works,” said a spokesperson.

“Unfortunately, his real self turns out to be the monster Edward Hyde.

“Undaunted, Jekyll continues his researches spending more and more time as Hyde and gradually the horrifying character of Hyde begins to take over.

“Jekyll’s fiancee and friends slowly become aware of the changes in him but are powerless to help.

“Jekyll himself finds it more and more difficult to keep Hyde at bay, and his initial delight turns to despair with devastating consequences<” they added.

The show will be performed at 7.30pm each evening.

Tickets cost £7.35 for adults, £4.60 for under 18s or £6.50 for adults with TheatereCards and £4 for juniors with TheatreCards.
