It’s no surprise to see shows with spooky or paranormal themes this time of year. For companies that produce Shakespeare, Macbeth is an easy and popular choice. But in the case of Devil You Know’s production, dated acting styles better off left dead and buried ruin one of Shakespeare’s masterpieces.
Progressive London audiences looking to embrace the macabre may be interested in Jekyll and Hyde by the National Youth Theatre at the Ambassador’s Theatre. Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde, the production is directed by Roy Alexander Weise and written by Evan Placey.
