Free the good in man and let it fly… These are the words spoken by eminent doctor and scientist Dr Jekyll, whose life’s work is devoted to helping those in turmoil. Through research and development he holds a mirror to those who pursue self interest and personal desires by means of crime or terror, then choose to blame society for their actions. But when his experiments start taking him to increasingly dark places, will he be able to hold on to the goodness he believes in, or will he be lost to a world of deception, self indulgence and secret passions?
Dave Willetts's London stage credits include Les Miserables at the Palace Theatre, The Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty's Theatre, Aspects of Love at the Menier Chocolate Factory, Sunset Boulevard at the Comedy Theatre, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers at the Theatre Royal Haymarket and Ragtime at the Piccadilly Theatre.
