Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde – Absolutely Fabulous Theatre Connection
11 March @ 2:30 pm - 18 March @ 4:00 pmHK$150 – HK$220
After the tremendous success of Franky, a theatrical re-telling of Frankenstein in 2016, the Absolutely Fabulous Theatre Connection (AFTEC) will stage another re-imagined production, Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde. This exciting production, inspired by The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, will be staged at the Sai Wan Ho Civic Centre Theatre.
The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a successful classic published in 1886 by Robert Louis Stevenson, which portrays how every individual has a duality of both benevolent and malevolent personalities, thoughts and feelings within them. Inspired by this enthralling classic, Dr Vicki Ooi will present a powerful production showing the destruction that can be wrought when ambition goes unchecked by moral constraints and conscience. The play also presents a debate on how our personalities and moral compass were shaped. Does nature or nurture make us who we are? Performed by native English-speaking cast, with English and Chinese surtitles. There will be two public performances of the show on 11 and 18 March. Performances are about 1 hour and 15 minutes, and are suitable for age six and above. Tickets available at URBTIX.
