Adapting Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

Age 12+

Dougie Irvine, Artistic Director of Visible Fictions Theatre Company, and Oscar Silva, Portuguese director and theatre maker, give you a fascinating insight into their collaborative dramatic and bilingual adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s seminal Gothic novella Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. They talk about the development process and use of different languages, and they present some scenes. A must-see for those intrigued by the process of taking a book from page to stage.
