You wait all year for an Arrows & Traps production… and then five come along at once. Unable to return to the stage just yet, Arrows have instead taken to the screen – and given the often cinematic style of writer and director Ross McGregor’s work, it should come as no particular surprise that the transition works pretty seamlessly.
Talking Gods sees Arrows & Traps move online with a creative hybrid of theatre and film hoiking Ancient Greek mythology into the modern age.
Arrows & Traps’ queer noir take on The Strange Case of Jekyll & Hyde is a contemporary adaptation that speaks to the ages at the Brockley Jack Theatre.
Arrows & Traps’ 18th production in its five-year history is also its tenth at London’s Brockley Jack Theatre, where it is now an associate company, and its third in a Gothic trilogy. And it’s a corker.
Arrows & Traps’ track record adapting classics is second to none, and with this new production of The Strange Case of Jekyll & Hyde Ross McGregor has created something startlingly modern and original that still embraces its Victorian origins.
Arrows & Traps’ The Strange Case Of Jekyll & Hyde is one for a new generation: an endlessly thought-provoking, unsettling, enthralling production that’s not to be missed.

Possessing the wit of Wilde and the sexual frankness of a Restoration play, George Farquhar’s The Recruiting Officer has been a firm favourite since its first performance in 1706. Jenny Eastop’s latest production is set in present-day Shrewsbury, and from the off, the satirical nature of the original is present.
