This version of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde had been carefully written to allow for scene changes. It was still a complicated show to configure. I took a lot of inspiration for this production from my trip to Prague. I was particularly interested in the different doors around the city, and wanted the doors within the set to reflect the personalities of the characters. This is the street scene that takes place outside Jekyll's Laboratory.
