Jekyll & Hyde Performance for Year 11


Big Brum Theatre in Education came to visit us on Thursday 27th February to perform for our Year 11 GCSE students.

Big Brum’s production of ‘The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde’ adapted by Chris Cooper is a powerful drama, rich in imagery that illuminates the themes at the heart of Stevenson’s complex text. Themes such as identity, good and evil, love and hate knowledge and ethics, power and responsibility, and what makes us human. However hard you try to hide your feelings, you can never truly hide them forever…

The performance was arranged as a way of assisting the year 11 students with their understanding of the plot, characters and themes from the Victorian novella Jekyll and Hyde. This proved to be a highly beneficial experience for them in preparation for their forthcoming literature mocks and GCSEs.
