This fresh adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novella Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde takes the story of love, lust and depravity and gives it a shocking modern update. On the fog-bound streets of Victorian-era London, Henry Jekyll's experiments with exotic "powders and tinctures" have brought forth his other self -- Edward Hyde, a sensualist and villain free to commit the sins Jekyll is too civilized to comprehend. When Hyde meets a woman who stirs his interest, Jekyll fears for her life and decides to end his experiments. But Hyde has other ideas, and the two sides battle each other in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse to determine who shall end up as master. This adaptation by Jeffrey Hatcher was nominated by the Mystery Writers of America for an Edgar Award for Best Play. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
“The Electric Baby is illuminating. It made me care about these strangers’ lives. It made me misty for their losses and their gains. It inspired me to believe in the magic of a moonbeam.” —_"Chicago Theatre Beat":http://chicagotheaterbeat.com/2013/05/22/review-the-electric-baby-rivendell-theatre/ (3.5 stars)
“Though riddled with tragedy and loss, Stefanie Zadravec’s play is an often humorous, beautifully told tale of redemption, forgiveness and hope.” —Chicago Stage Standard stars)
“Zadravec deploys her endearing quirks with a good amount of grace and conviction … H.B. Ward and Meighan Gerachis, in particular, are painfully (I mean, painfully) good as the average couple.” —Chicago Reader
