National Theatre - Jekyll & Hyde


After the success of the Jekyll & Hyde schools tour in 2022, the National Theatre is bringing back Evan Placey’s reimagined version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale, directed by Kirsty Housley. Touring to secondary schools from January 2024, two performances will be open to the public at The Lowry this January. 

In a mash up of Victorian England and the modern day, the story explores how the repression of female voices is as prevalent in the 19th century as it is today. Centring around two new protagonists – Hattie, Jekyll’s widow, and Florence, a young blogger in the 21st century – these new narratives confront the power the internet holds to unleash our own inner Hydes. 

The tour will be seen by over 10,000 pupils in secondary schools across 12 Theatre Nation Partnership areas in England, to grow and sustain new audiences for live theatre and create more opportunities to engage in the arts. For the first time this year, the tour is visiting a number of theatres to strengthen connections between schools and their local venues and reach as wide an audience as possible.
