Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher (Drama)
This is not your Grandfather’s telling of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. In Hatcher’s version, he explores the complexity of the dual nature of man. Yes, Mr. Hyde is evil beyond measure, but he is also capable of love and being loved. The same for Dr. Jekyll, he isn’t the good natured victim as we’ve come to believe him to be. Neither counterpart is wholly evil or pure.
Enjoy the intense game of cat-and-mouse between Jekyll and Hyde and ask yourself for whom we should be rooting.
“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.
For teenage and older audiences.
