It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that Gloucester High Drama would like to announce their fall production of:
A Jekyll and Hyde play
by Lauren Wilson
A darkly comic adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. In Victorian England, repressed impulses burst their corsets as Dr. Jekyll's experiments in the nature of evil threaten to reveal the bloody hands beneath the gloves of the British Empire. A fast-paces romp about men and women tightrope walking the line between aristocracy and depravity, and between the twin spectres of good and evil.
The play is set in a Victorian England of the Imagination
Euphronia Jekyll, a society matron
Ambrosia Jekyll, her daughter
Henry Jekyll, her son
Lady Throckmortonshire, a grande dame
Calliope and Penelope Throckmortonshire, her twin daughters, aged 9
Rosamunda Dewthistle, eligible young lady
Xavier Utterson, coustin to Jekyll
Ivy, a maid
Plodgett, the cook
The twins are played by one actor.
The older women (Mrs. Jekyll and Lady T) may be played by men.
