About the Play:

Jekyll and Hyde is a full-length melodrama by Leonard Caddy. A sinister and brooding tale that looks at the darkness in us all – the side we suppress, that our morals overrule. This retelling of Robert Louis Stevenson's well-known chilling thriller promises to grip your audience from start to finish.

Jekyll and Hyde is a stage adaptation of the well known Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. Dr. Henry Jekyll is introduced just as he is on the brink of discovering the key to man's inner reality. One evening he experiments on himself and finds that his formula works. Unfortunately, his "real" self turns out to be the monster Edward Hyde. Undaunted, Jekyll continues his research, spending more and more time as Hyde and gradually the horrifying character of Hyde begins to take over. Jekyll's fiancée and friends slowly become aware of the changes in him but are powerless to help. Jekyll himself finds it more and more difficult to keep Hyde at bay, and his initial delight soon turns to despair with devastating consequences. When Hyde brutally murders one of the young maids, he realizes his experiment has gone too far, and he takes the only possible course of action left to him.
