Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde

Directed by Susan Reid
Scenic Concept by Designer John Thigpen

In this chilling new version of the classic tale, Dr. Henry Jekyll tips the scales with his dangerous experiments, bringing forth his other self, the horrifying monster Edward Hyde. It seems that only a woman can stop the vicious cycle. This fiendishly clever adaptation reveals the many faces of Edward Hyde as each talented actor has a hand at portraying the monster himself.

“A smart, tense and suspenseful new take on Stevenson’s look at the evil that lurks in the hearts of men.”

The San Francisco Chronicle


Producer Quote

Anthony Rodriguez, Producing Artistic Director of Aurora Theatre, “With Halloween as October’s premiere holiday (sorry Christopher Columbus), Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a perfect show for our 15th Anniversary season. However, producing this play was less about seasonality and more about story. No matter what play we choose, the stories must be compelling. Jeffrey Hatcher’s version is fascinating in that he has 4 actors portray Mr. Hyde. It is a truly innovative way to show the complexity of Jekyll’s changing personality. Whether a fan of the spooky, great storytelling or both, I am certain you will enjoy our production of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.”
