Meet the most delightfully evil man alive, Mr Hyde. A man so evil he punches the cleaner, drop-kicks a precious puffin, and yells 'shark' at the beach. From the creators of 2018's hit Don Juan, this bonkers rendition of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel Jekyll and Hyde is retold by a team of charmingly "French" performers with the help of the audience. Experience theatre at its most joyous with audacious performers, twisted pop songs and brilliant physical comedy. Praise for Don Juan: ***** ( **** (List). **** (Scotsman).

The audience seemed to like it but i thought it was very overpriced for what they offered. You need to like your jokes simple and very silly in order to like the show. It wasnt terrible but i would not go and see it again. Oh and that audience participation thing wears off very quickly and honestly, making people repeat things you whisper in their ears is not that funny after all.

Loved their show last year and was impressed again with their latest offering!

Very talented actors who have mastered the art of getting the audience to be a part of the story!

Also, their vocals are outstanding so its a joy to watch them in action.

Must see!

Hysterical, overtly sexual and very French all at the same time. This is the second production from A Slightly Isolated Dog I have seen, and boy do they deliver. Witty and engaging, this fantastic cast tell the story of jekyll and hyde, with some really clever and fun audience participation. A fab show to see for a good many laughs and some audience participation.

For two years now A Slightly Isolated Dog have been my favourite show at Edinburgh Fringe! It is witty, funny, silly, crazy, passionate and very very french!
I loved every second of it. The cast make you feel so welcome and it almost turns into a tiny community when you are in the tent with them. Each actor on stage brings their own energy, you can not help but laugh and join in!
I'm not a professional critic but I feel it deserves *****

Cleverly presented with audience participation and laughed all throughout.

Great fun, the sideline gossiping about each other to the audience is clever, the way the audience is involved is so easy going and not cringey as is usually the case. So much to laugh at and they can sing. We always try to see a show with the best leafleting pitch and these easily won, we weren't intending to see anything at the time but well worth it.

Brilliant show! Would highly recommend, really creative, clever and very slick. Fantastic use of props and sound design and wonderful singing to boot! We all had great fun, although sadly one of our group was killed during the performance, RIP Innocent Bystander James.

This was damn good fun! Just go. They are quick, clever and you’ll leave with a grin on your face. It’s hard to get an audience on your side during the day and these guys did it quickly. Such a good time!! Five stars.

If you’ve seen anything that A Slightly Isolated Dog has done, you’ve arguably seen all of it, and that is in no way a bad thing. For those who are fans of last years Don Juan, Jekyll and Hyde is more of the passionate, silly, and very French show, but...

If you’re happy to embrace being asked to be a part of the action then this may be the one for you. One thing is for certain, the strange case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde has never been told quite like this.

The Stage (4/5 stars) 42 days ago

It’s unlikely you are going to be greeted with more enthusiasm than you are by the cast of Jekyll and Hyde.
Adopting cod French accents they overwhelm you with bonhomie and less than subtle flattery, but it’s all part of the game. Created by the makers of last year’s acclaimed Don Juan, this production thrives on audience participation.

The Edinburgh Reporter (4/5 stars) 42 days ago

Jekyll and Hyde might have Robert Louis Stevenson turning in his grave but he surely would have chuckled.
This New Zealand show, with an ever-so-slight twinge of Kiwi under their faux-French accents, is young, lively, funny, rude, audience-inclusive and all in all the perfect mid-afternoon silliness.

If you don’t like audience participation, Jekyll & Hyde isn’t for you. This mad-cap production by New Zealand company A Slightly Isolated Dog relies heavily on contributions from audience members. It’s cam...
