DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE – Opening April 21 at Langham Court Theatre

A Gothic Melodrama, adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher from the novella by Robert Louis Stevenson, Directed by Keith Digby & Cynthia Pronick. A Langham Court Theatre Production at Langham Court Theatre, Victoria, BC. Performances April 19 – May 6, 2017.

Lock your doors! A singular evil stalks the bloodstained streets of Whitechapel.
 
Decades of Evil: The repressed imaginations of Late Victorian England gave us a host of Gothic horrors, both real and fictitious. In 1897, Count Dracula emerged from the pen of Bram Stoker; in 1888, Jack the Ripper perpetrated unimagined horrors in the dark alleys of Whitechapel; and in 1886, Robert Louis Stevenson wrote The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
 
The road to Hell, they say, is paved with good intentions. Dr. Henry Jekyll’s experiments with powders and tinctures – intended to isolate the evil in mankind – have instead created Mr. Hyde, his other self: a villainous, atavistic creature set free to perform horrendous acts of evil that upright Victorian Dr. Jekyll is initially too civilized to comprehend… but Jekyll soon finds that freedom from morality can be terribly addictive.
 
In this new, dramatized version of Stevenson’s classic Gothic tale, there is not one Hyde, but many… and the result is highly theatrical mayhem. Enter a world of fog-bound, lamp-lit alleys and furtive misdeeds hidden behind righteous facades. Victorian London – and Hyde – are waiting for you.
