Atmospheric melodrama Jekyll and Hyde shows that everyone has a monster within.

Dr Henry Jekyll believes that there are two distinct sides to men - one good, one evil. Intent on separating the two, he succeeds in his experiments. However, in doing so he unleashes Hyde, a monstrous and uncontrollable alter ego.

The play is on stage at Buxton Opera House until Friday, August 19, with performances at 7.30pm. Tickets £16-£18.
