The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

In this faithful adaptation Stevenson's gripping narrative is brought vividly to life through a combination of powerful storytelling and masterful character creation.

North West End UK

In Mark Stratford's highly accomplished hands... the storytelling is as clear as it could possibly be. Stratford is a very talented actor. Definitely one to catch if you can.


A wonderful theatrical experience

Herts Advertiser

Stratford’s stellar performance carries the play. An accomplished exploration of one of the best works in the Gothic tradition.

The Reviews Hub

Mark Stratford's engrossing solo adaptation. A wonderfully accessible and faithful version of the story performed with skill and precision. Stratford delivers an acting masterclass.

Fairy Powered Productions

As the story unfolds, we begin to see moments of Mr Hyde, and from here on in we are well and truly hooked.

Views from the Gods

One man shows, done well, are absorbing and showcase actors at the top of their game; if not they risk being entertaining for the wrong reasons. Thankfully, Stratford’s performance is so good it belongs in the former category... a faithful and well-acted version of a classic which retains a relevance to the modern day.

Remote Goat

A gripping piece of theatre. Students studying the text should get along to see Stratford's show to see the characters come alive.

British Theatre Guide

Stratford is a master in the art of creating characters. This faithful interpretation should prove attractive to aficionados of the genre and newcomers alike.
