What happened the night that Henry Jekyll died? Against the backdrop of Victorian London, the respected Dr. Jekyll has begun to display alarmingly erratic behavior toward his friends. At the same time, a brutal figure has begun to haunt the city's streets, committing assault and murder under the cloak of darkness and the dismal London fog. In The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dr. Jekyll's friend and lawyer confronts the monstrous Mr. Hyde in a series of Rashomon-like scenes that attempt to answer the puzzles at the heart of a tortured soul.
Nationally renowned playwright and ATC favorite Jeffrey Hatcher (Compleat Female Stage Beauty, The Turn of the Screw, Work Song: Three Views of Frank Lloyd Wright, Tuesdays With Morrie, Ella) bring Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale of inner demons and evil unchecked to ATC's stage in a theatrically intense, intimate and fiendishly clever world premiere. ATC Artistic Director David Ira Goldstein directs. A co-production with San Jose Repertory Theatre.
