Jekyll and Hyde was written for the stage by Frank Wildhorn and Leslie Bricusse and is based on the classic novel The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson.

The musical was written in the 1980s and has been performed worldwide.

It is a much lighter take than the original gothic horror and explores the epic struggle of man between good and evil.

The powerful pop rock music charts the struggle of a doctor attempting to find a cure for his father’s mental illness, which goes drastically wrong and creates an alter ego who soon wreaks havoc on the streets of Victorian London.

Reverend Canon Dr Mark Hocknull, Chancellor of Lincoln Cathedral said: “The ‘Theatre in the Nave project’ in Lincoln Cathedral is a marvellous community event, bringing many different people together to use their gifts and talents.”
