    Flat Packed Theatre 'Hyde & Seek'

     

    Based on the tale of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Hyde & Seek is a macabre ghost story with occasional spatterings of vaudevillian humour.

    The story expands on the world of the original narrative; and the friendly, yet haunted former stage-door man, Albert, tells a grisly tale of the further misdeeds of Mr Hyde and his ‘acquaintance’ - the tormented genius, Dr Jekyll.

    Using specially designed self contained lighting effects, Hyde and Seek is a chilling and intimate story-telling experience: ghostly figures are glimpsed briefly before vanishing, characters appear out of nowhere, and what you can’t quite see becomes a lot more disconcerting than what you can.

    Set in a long-abandoned theatre in Victorian London, the show has a theme of vaudeville running through it resulting in darkly comic song, dance, puppetry and even ventriloquism, which interweave with the story.

    Written by Ben Oldfield (Cube). Created by Michael Tonkin-Jones (Spillikin) and Ciaran Clarke (Near-Ta Theatre). Performed by Michael Tonkin-Jones (Spillikin). Produced by Jasmine Cole Productions Ltd.

    Simon Evans : 'Genius'Simon Evans : 'Genius'

    Simon Evans is one of the most exciting and distinctive talents to emerge on the comedy circuit in recent years. He is a familiar voice on BBC Radio 4 as a regular on The News Quiz, The Unbelievable Truth and Armando Iannucci's Charm Offensive.  Simon also contributes material to Lee Mack's BBC hit sit-com, Not Going Out.

    Ever since he was a small boy, all Evans really wanted was to be recognised by the world as a man of genius. He has, until now, remained thwarted.

    The world seems increasingly indifferent to true genius of any kind, let alone Evans’. Endlessly distracted by the trivial, we allow the classical tools of grammar, logic and rhetoric to lie unregarded in the shed of consciousness, rusting to a picturesque hue that would actually look really great on Instagram. But which filter?    Hmmm…

    'Super-sharp wit' (Time Out).
    'Wields language like a rapier' (Scotsman).
    'Please clap'
    (Jeb Bush).
