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, The Turn of the Screw, Neddy, Compleat 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). He has also written for the Peter Falk TV series Columbo and E!
