‘If I am the chief of sinners, I am the chief of sufferers also.’

A series of random nocturnal assaults in the back streets and alleyways of Victorian London are spreading fear and panic. Meanwhile, the friends of a highly respected doctor are beginning to wonder why he goes missing on exactly the same nights…

Neil Bartlett’s inventive, brilliantly theatrical adaptation cuts right to the heart of Robert Louis Stevenson’s darkly fascinating tale of male violence, guilt and privilege.

It premiered at Derby Theatre in 2022, directed by Artistic Director Sarah Brigham, before transferring to Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch. Written for an ensemble and with several key roles for women, this adaptation will appeal to any theatre or company looking to thrill their audiences with a bold new take on this classic tale of murder and mayhem.

‘Satisfyingly creepy… Neil Bartlett’s adaptation is a bold one, emphasising themes of male power and privilege… it’s eerily engaging’
The Stage
