October 24-November 10, 2013
Is there a good and evil side to everyone? And can we always tell the difference? In this new adaptation of the classic tale, Dr Henry Jekyll undertakes experiments aimed at separating the best parts of his personality form the worst. When the result is the disastrous creation of his alter-ego, the savage Edward Hyde, Dr. Jekyll comes face-to-face with the very nature of good and evil. The San Francisco Chronicle calls Hatcher's adaptation of this classic "a smart, tense, and suspenseful new take."

Based on the classic film starring Edmund Gwenn, Maureen O'Hara, and Natalie Wood, this stage adaptation is certain to be a holiday delight!
