As Halloween approaches, CCCT seeks to explore a notorious story from this dark season. The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a classic mystery set in Victorian England. Robert Lewis Stevenson first wrote the story (after recalling a dream he had) with only the intentions of writing an entertaining tale. Yet at the suggestion of his wife, he decided to revamp the mystery to comment on the dual nature of man and of society in general.
Our production of Jeffrey Hatcher’s adaptation is a new and shocking version of Stevenson’s classic tale of depravity, lust, love and horror. On the fog-bound streets of Victorian-era London, Henry Jekyll’s experiments with exotic “powders and tinctures” have brought forth his other self—Edward Hyde, a sensualist and villain free to commit the sins Jekyll is too civilized to comprehend. When Hyde meets a woman who stirs his interest, Jekyll fears for her life and decides to end his experiments. But Hyde has other ideas, and so the two sides battle each other in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse to determine who shall be the master and who his slave.
Performances are held each Friday and Saturday at 8:00pm with Sunday matinees at 2:30pm. Opening night is October 20 complete with complimentary reception after the show. Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde performances reach each weekend through November 5th.
