Jekyll & Hyde opens at Circa Two next week in time to heat up the fast approaching Autumn evenings. Five French clowns will be seducing your inner Hyde out to play. Here they reveal their most evil moments in a scandalous game of who dunnit.
A truly guilt-ridden culprit takes us back to their childhood horror of breaking their best friend’s beloved toy bat. The evidence was quickly disposed of in a moment of sheer panic, only to be discovered later on accompanied with a spectacular display of tears and hysteria. We recommend keeping your treasured possessions and dignity at home if you wish for them to remain even remotely intact and will not be held responsible for any erratic behaviour post-show.
Sausage rolls and chocolate milk led to the moral corruption of one sweet toothed offender. Not only did this vice result in increased dentist trips, but it was funded through semi-regularly stealing their parents’ change while packed lunches were merely fed to the rubbish bin. Nothing gets past the watchful eyes of a parent though, so a cold dish of revenge is likely to have been brewing away for years. Don’t say I didn’t warm you.
Pitiless sinner number three will not be offering you a helping hand anytime soon. After witnessing a cyclist fall off their bicycle in the middle of the road, they chose to walk on by, let the struggling continue and the potential impending doom from oncoming vehicles play out. Consider this a sympathy-free zone.
In a moment of hot passion one of our feistier cast members took the opportune moment at a friend’s party to sneak off to a younger sibling’s room and not quite satisfied with breaking boundaries, kicked a hole through the wall. When questioned we were informed it was an upside-down affair with limbs in every direction.
Another sticky situation arose after an alter-ego put a half-eaten ice cream into an unsuspecting stranger’s letterbox on a very warm summer’s day.
If this brings back any anger-inducing recollections, please remain calm for the time being and come to Circa Two on 19 March to let your rage explode and the sparks fly.
STARRING: Susie Berry, Jack Buchanan, Andrew Paterson, Jonathan Price and Hayley Sproull
