Made in 48 Hours return with Jekyll & Hyde

Leamington Editorial 17th Jul, 2023   0

JEKYLL & Hyde will be taking to the stage of Kenilworth’s Talisman Theatre in double quick time

Made in 48 Hours return to the Barrow Road theatre with Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic on Sunday July 23.

Yet again the team will be learning lines, rehearsing dance moves, finding costumes and putting up the set before delivering the show itself, all in just two days.

As always the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to charity and this year’s show will be in aid of Spencer’s Retreat, part of the Langsdale Trust.




Made in 48 Hours has been organising these productions on an annual basis since 1999, when the concept was born, while Sam Harris and her husband James, were at university in Sheffield.

Sam said: “We started out with just a combined cast and crew of ten and it’s wonderful that we’re not only still going, but also to see how much we’ve grown over the years.


“I have never been able to work out how the cast manage to learn their lines so quickly. It’s amazing what you can retain, but sometimes people forget things and have to get themselves out of it, which always seems to give the audience a good laugh.

“We, like so many others, were affected by Covid, but we are back with a vengeance. We were so excited to have been welcomed back to the Talisman Theatre, which we consider our spiritual home and are extremely grateful for their help and support.”
