This play is by our playwright-in-residence, Lynne Thomas, who based it on the original work by Robert Louis Stevenson. First published in 1886, Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a Gothic novella inspired by Stevenson's fascination with the duality--good and evil--of human nature. Even if you haven't read or seen the story, you are most likely familiar with its impact on our culture...to call someone a "Jekyll and Hyde" refers to their switching unexpectedly from kind to nasty with little provocation. Although it has long been the subject of horror plays and movies, Ms. Lynne's play is child-friendly, but still spooky, smart and witty. We rate this one as appropriate for an audience of five-years-old to adult.
