Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde
A horror classic. Reimagined.
adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher
based on the novella
Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
by Robert Louis Stevenson
Aug 26 – Oct 29
On the fog-bound streets of London, Dr. Henry Jekyll conducts mysterious experiments that unleash a shadow self—Edward Hyde. He’s an eerily endearing brute who’s unafraid to pursue his basest desires. When Hyde falls in love with a young chambermaid, Jekyll fears for her life and decides to end his experiments. But is it too late? Thus begins a savage game of cat-and-mouse, leaving a trail of mayhem in its wake. Commonweal favorite Jeffrey Hatcher reimagines this classic tale of horror that probes the nature of humanity and oozes with suspense.
Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is a tense and intricately-woven tale of brutality and desire. It contains staged violence as well as graphic descriptions of abuse, including that of a sexual nature. It is suited for mature high schoolers and older. If you’d like more detailed information, visit our content advisory page. (Note: may contain spoilers)
