Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde $13

Jeffrey Hatcher from Robert Louis Stevenson

Published by Dramatists Play Service

4 Male 2 Female

A new and shocking version of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale of depravity, lust, love and horror ...

On the fog-bound streets of Victorian-era London, Henry Jekyll's experiments with exotic "powders and tinctures" have brought forth his other self-Edward Hyde, a sensualist and villain free to commit the sins Jekyll is too civilized to comprehend

When Hyde meets a woman who stirs his interest, Jekyll fears for her life and decides to end his experiments

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 slave

"A smart, tense and suspenseful new take on Stevenson's look at the evil that lurks in the hearts of men ... Hatcher has fashioned a play that seems truer to Stevenson but hipper, sexier and more intense ... a suspense almost as affecting as it is intense" ~ San Francisco Chronicle

"An elegant re-telling of the classic tale. Hatcher has a sure hand with tone and suspense. He knows how to spring just enough surprises to keep us guessing. In the end, despite the legion of villains in the play, it's the tug of war between Jekyll and his own erupting sense of shame and disgust that leaves the most indelible mark on the mind's eye" ~ San Jose Mercury News
