Jekyll and Hyde

Adapted for the stage by Nicholas Briggs

From the classic story Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

Dr Henry Jekyll believes that there are two distinct sides to men – one good, one evil. Intent on separating the two, he succeeds in his experiments. However, in doing so he unleashes ‘Hyde’, a monstrous and uncontrollable alter ego.

First presented at the Theatre Royal Nottingham in the Colin McIntyre Classic Thriller Season, 2015

This is a fun, fast paced show, and certainly worth seeing for a relaxed evening out. Victoria Villasenor, LeftLion

…on first night it held its thriller season audience from start to finish. Alan Geary, Nottingham Post

Briggs’ adaptation stays true to the original albeit edited for brevity and theatrically. Phil Lowe, the Public Reviews

Sherlock Holmes: The Hound of the Baskervilles

Adapted for the stage by Nicholas Briggs

From the classic story The Hound of the Baskervilles by Arthur Conan Doyle

Young Dr Mortimer ventures from Devonshire to Baker Street with news of the death of his friend, Sir Charles Baskerville. Can it really be that the grisly legend of the Hound of the Baskervilles might have something to do with the case? Holmes will have none of it, but even he must accept that dark forces are at work. Dark forces that it seems Dr Watson must face alone…

First presented at the Theatre Royal Nottingham in the Classic Thriller Season, 2015

Adapter Nicholas Briggs, who also plays a comically smooth Sherlock Holmes, makes it a play within a play. Dr Watson who’s supposed to have written it, is putting the whole thing on at the Royal. This gives lots of scope for sending it up; and up it’s well and truly sent… A cracking start to the Thriller Season. Alan Geary, Nottingham Post

A send up of the original, with tongue firmly in cheek, pipe clamped firmly against a stiff upper lip and occasional bursts of tweed. …the assembled masses of thriller season lovers were lapping up the silliness. A gentle wheeze. Dom Henry, Leftlion
