Jekyll & Hyde - A Slightly Isolated Dog

Five hilarious performers tell the terrifying (yet still exceptionally sexy) tale of Jekyll & Hyde. Thrilling, charming, shockingly good comedy, we make you laugh until it hurts.

An 80 minute, guaranteed feel-good night, expect plenty of laughs in the company of your mates, and some of the sassiest performers in town.

While the story of Jekyll & Hyde is well known, we tell it in a completely absurd, joyous and irreverent way.

Remember what it was like to play? Making up ridiculous stories with your friends as a child? This is what we recreate. The audience interaction is designed to put people immediately at ease: we take care with the audience at all times so that everybody feels successful and beautiful.

Our shows are fast and furious, mashing up styles of sketch comedy, music gig, physical theatre, and wordplay.

“...a high-octane, overly-charged show that defies many conventions of theatre”. – Ewen Coleman, DomPost

"a style of theatre not ordinarily seen: playful, energetic, silly and spirited where having fun...is the main aim." - NZ Herald

"an absolute tour de force of modern theatre practice...No matter how dark you feel before you come, that darkness will disappear during this blackest, and sexiest of comedies" - Theatreview

“[Jekyll & Hyde] displays some of the most gentle, loving and encouraging audience interaction that I have ever seen. These larger-than-life clowns ease us into the games they’re playing, making it feel like being involved is the most exciting thing in the world....joyful, positive, sexy, hilarious and clever. I wish I could stay for hours. – Hannah Banks, Pantograph Punch
