The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
461 East Mitchell Street
Petoskey, MI 49770
This promises to be another wonderful production from the Little Traverse Civic Theatre.
Based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s Novella of the same name this story is ingeniously told from the perspective of Newcomen, the inspector from Scotland Yard who is assigned to this case. He has the grim task of finding the murderous man or beast who has terrorized all of London. Thomas and Redmond do more than a simple retelling of the ancient horror story. In the words of John Gulley, the Artistic Director of the Asolo Touring Theatre, and who originally commissioned the work, "Actors love the Thomas/Redmond plays. The characters talk like real people, and they have real depth and dimension...a formidable feat." Thomas and Redmond have crafted fully fleshed characters out of the dry bones of history, making the story hauntingly real.
Warning Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde contains material that is not suited for younger audiences including violence, murder, and assault.
