About the Play:

Chemical Imbalance: A Jekyll and Hyde Play is a full-length dark comedy by Lauren Wilson. Dr. Jekyll's research finds him – as usual – investigating the split between good and evil in the human psyche. Of course, things get out of hand when he decides being evil might be more fun and recreational. This hilarious spoof of the classic story by Robert Louis Stevenson will keep your audience in stitches as this fast-paced comedy takes the stage and is appropriate for all ages.

Chemical Imbalance: A Jekyll and Hyde Play is a zany spin on Robert Louis Stevenson's gothic novella Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. In a dim laboratory, a sinister potion of three parts nitroglycerin and two parts petroleum sulphide is being concocted. The result? The answer lies in a classic story about the nature of good and evil retold in a way you never thought possible! A fast-paced romp about men and women tightrope walking the line between aristocracy and depravity, and between the twin spectres of good and evil, this comedic retelling of the classic, dark tale will send shivers of both fear and laughter rattling down the spines of your audience.

Chemical Imbalance: A Jekyll and Hyde Play premiered in 2006 at the EXIT Theatre in San Francisco, California. Since then the play had regional premieres at professional theatres across the US and has been mounted by high schools, colleges, and community theatres.

Cast: 5 female, 4 male (doubling)
