"Holloway successfully transposes a strikingly clear interpretation of Dickens’ original message, in a form that can not only be described as economical but minimalist, and clean." – Timeout Hong Kong

“This is an expertly devised adaptation and one which is true to the original text. It is refreshingly staged and emotionally gripping. A testament to Jonathan Holloway's innovation." – HKELD

"This production minimises the set to chairs, lights and shoes and fills the stage with the a story of love, loss, resurrection and revenge...A beautiful, emotional and thoughtful production, this re-imagining brings the Charles Dickens classic comfortably into modern theatre." – Edinburgh Festivals Magazine

“A gloriously searing exploration of the scope of humanity’s ability to make sense of trauma. A must-see" – The Londonist

“Holloway’s text offers an interesting and original response to the Jekyll & Hyde story, that adds a new dimension to our understanding of Stevenson’s masterpiece" – The Scotsman
