The Strange Case of
Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
By Nick Lane
11 - 14 September 2019
Crescent Theatre, Birmingham B16 8AE
Doctor Henry Jekyll is a good man. Successful within his field, respected by his peers, and close to a neurological discovery that will change the face of medical science forever... but his methods are less than ethical. When a close friend and colleague threatens to expose and destroy his work, Jekyll is forced to experiment on himself and something goes very wrong. Or very right. Suddenly Jekyll has a new friend , the brutal Edward Hyde, and he has willed his entire fortune to him. But what is Jekyll s true legacy? Love, betrayal and murder combine in this chilling adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson s classic tale of good and evil.

A Christmas Carol
By Patrick Barlow
27 November - 1 December 2018
Studio, Crescent Theatre, Birmingham B16 8AE
“Picking a man’s pocket every twenty-fifth of December! It’s not fair sir d’ye hear me? Just not fair”
It wouldn’t be Christmas without A Christmas Carol.
In this new stage version, Patrick Barlow takes Charles Dickens’ classic story of greed, grief, ghoulish ghosts and eleventh-hour redemption, and makes it feel brand new again.
