Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde

Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde is a re-imagined theatre production directed by Dr Vicki Ooi based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. This story portrays how every individual has a duality of both benevolent and malevolent personalities, thoughts and feelings within them.

This production also shows the destruction that can be wrought when ambition goes unchecked by moral constraints and conscience, as well as a debate on how our personalities and moral compasses were shaped.
