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.
The cast includes: Nils Swanson, Kristen Mair, Chris Coughlin, Clint Heyn, Samuel Garvin and Johanna Jaquith.
Playwright Jeffrey Hatcher has had many plays produced, most notably Three Viewings and A Picasso, Scotland Road, The Turn of the Screw, Tuesdays with Morrie (with Mitch Albom), Murder by Poe, Neddy, Complete Female Stage Beauty, Mrs. Mannerly, Murderers, Mercy of a Storm, Korczak’s Children, The Falls, and Work Song (with Eric Simonson). He wrote the screenplay Casanova for director Lasse Hallström, as well as the screenplay for The Duchess (2008).
