2014 Fall Production
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde
Directed by Marlee Koenigsberg
The New York Deaf Theatre is proud to announce it's Fall Production, "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde", held at the June Havoc Theatre this November.
Famous scientist Dr. Henry Jekyll craves an escape from the tedious propriety of Victorian life in London, 1888. He invents a formula which changes him into the wild, brutish and animalistic Edward Hyde. With the help of his all knowing Maid and Butler, Dr. Jekyll must keep his dual identity of Hyde a secret as his actions begin to lead him down a bloody path of crime and murder. Adapted from the novella by Robert Louis Stevenson, this theatrical physiological- science- thriller by Noah Smith is full of mystery, suspense and oddly full of heart. With a rich ensemble of characters this full ASL production with a diverse deaf, ASL fluent and hearing voice cast emulate the very nature of duality the play examines!
The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde invites us to examine the inhibitions we suppress and perhaps accept the darker side lurking within us all, waiting to be unleashed.
Take a walk on the wild side for a lesson in suspense!
