Based on the classic novella, this darkly comic adaptation takes you to the dismal streets of London in the 1860s, where societal pressures silence a gentle doctor’s questions about the nature of morality. As the pressure intensifies, Dr Jekyll takes matters into his own hands. However, things take an eerie turn when his experiment takes on a life of its own. Will his efforts save the world, or will they destroy all that he holds dear? After all, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Press Quotes

“The battle of good vs. evil has rarely been so entertaining.” —John Staton, Star News

“As a piece of theatre, it is fascinating, invigorating and challenging to the deepest parts of our very sense of self.” —Gwenyfar Rohler, Encore Magazine

“This is my favorite kind of theater — physical, inventive, ingenious and funny. Burt Grinstead and Anna Stromberg’s comedic adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is theatrical catnip — you just can’t get enough of it.” —Jacquelyn Claire, StageBiz.com

“If you are a fan of the book (you know which book I mean) then this is the comedy you’ve been waiting for. Two madcap theater artists have come up with an 80-minute retelling of the horrors unleashed by imprudent, self-indulgent science that leads to murderous, anti-social schizophrenia. All done with wit and style that had me laughing from the opening minutes to the very end.” —Larry Littany Litt, NYTheatre-Wire.com

“As playwrights, they have also infused the story with contemporary relevance: heightening the social commentary and playing up the frustrations associated with Victorian era repression by providing Jekyll with a feminist love interest. It all works to tell a tale that is at once familiar and completely fresh.” —Cathy Hammer, TheUnforgettableLine.com
