Mr Hyde

by Alan Drury

London in the 1880’s… a city of power and opulence… poverty ridden slums on the verge of revolution… public unrest explodes into street riots… fear of Jack the Ripper and his ghastly murders haunts the night…

An innocent country girl alone in London, Jane fins sanctuary and employment in the plush surroundings of a gentleman’s club. Gradually she realises she is inextricably involved in the Brotherhood’s web of intrigue, blackmail, and murder.

Mr Hyde explores the plush underbelly of Victorian England and esepcially its corruption – economic, social and sexual – and relates those rancid dreams to the great Gothic myths of the time. The plot is essentially a thriller and the production lays emphasis on the seductive visual imagery and music specially composed by Richard Jobson.
