Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
by: Jeffry Hatcher
A new and shocking version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale of love and horror.
On the fog-bound streets of London, Dr. Henry Jekyll’s experiments with exotic “powders
and tinctures” have brought forth multiple versions of his other self - Edward Hyde,
a complex and compelling character filled with both rage and passion. When Hyde falls
under the spell of a local woman, threatening to expose Jekyll’s work, Jekyll decides
to end the experiment and destroy his creation. But Hyde has other ideas, and so the
two sides battle each other in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse to determine who shall
be the master and who his servant. Hyde is portrayed by multiple actors onstage.
