Would you still be yourself? Or can a creature without compassion, without self-restraint, without morals, still be called human at all?
Robert Louis Stevenson claimed that the basic story of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde came to him in a nightmare. As Stevenson told the story, the secret of the relationship between the respectable Henry Jekyll and the malevolent Edward Hyde was not revealed until the final chapter.
The biggest challenge we faced in adapting this classic was its fame: the central mystery of the original tale is common knowledge, and "Jekyll and Hyde" has become a synonym for "split personality". We turned our attention to the central conflict of the story, the struggle between duty and lust for the soul of Henry Jekyll. Listeners can decide for themselves who wins that battle.
This is a full-cast, soundscaped audio dramatization from one of the classic authors.
