Jonathan Kaufman 19 Aug 2019
So some rather unwelcome news last week, when I discovered the Brockley Jack Theatre is staging a new, modern version of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde in September. This meant some rapid rescheduling of our programme – which was due to include Lucy Kaufman’s new, innovative adaptation of the same story in November – and the difficult decision to postpone our own version to a later date. We hope to bring Stevenson’s classic tale to the Sydenham Centre in due course, so watch this space…
Meanwhile, our new autumn schedule now includes an exciting follow-up to 2017’s portmanteau evening of tales of psychological terror Frighteners. Our new show, FRIGHTENERS 2019, will feature playlets written by south London playwrights and members of my advanced writing class ScriptHub. Thrilling and chilling stories of the supernatural, expect shivers up the spine and some shocking dramatic moments!
We will confirm show dates very soon, but provisionally the show is scheduled to run over four nights starting Fri 8 November.
