Like a Virgin by Reform Theatre

Written by Gordon Steel Presented by Reform Theatre Company Harrogate Theatre Thur 10 - Sat 12 May Book your tickets securely online at or by calling Harrogate Theatre Box Office on 01423 502 116. From the writer of Studs comes a hilarious romp through the bubble-gum years of teenage life. Angela and Maxine, two sixteen year olds, attack life with laughter, vibrancy and excitement. Besotted with Madonna they truant from school, form a band, attempt to write pop songs -- and with hairbrushes in hand they live out their adolescent dreams of becoming famous. Angela's mother, Viv, is distraught after her husband suddenly leaves her to set up home with another woman. She struggles to come to terms with herself and her daughter's explosive lifestyle. A volatile, yet loving relationship develops as the two grow to appreciate each other's very different needs. The play erupts into a rollercoaster of emotions as it tackles hope, sex, driving ambition, despair and most of all love. With thanks to City Varieties, Leeds

A world of shadows and invisible women... Henry Jekyll returns to 'Auld Reekie', a respectable physician. At first, his good friend and lawyer Utterson is elated by the news. Yet on reuniting with the doctor, Utterson can't help but suspect that something is amiss in the Jekyll house. The doctor's health is deteriorating, his former recklessness replaced by religious zeal. What secret knowledge is the butler hiding, and who is the evasive and unpleasant new lab assistant, Mr Hyde? "Moran possesses rare talent, gifted with versatility and energy, able to switch from the respectable Jekyll to the wide-eyed violent Hyde in a thrice." The Arts Desk Hyde's maiden tour of the North achieved sell out success and critical acclaim throughout, and was nominated for both Best Actor (Christopher Ward) and Best Production at the Buxton Fringe 2011.
