Is there a good and evil side to everyone? And can we always tell the difference? Stoneham Theatre is exploring the idea of good versus evil with a new adaptation of the classic story, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde opening tonight, Thursday, October 24, 2013.
Following the success of other thrillers such as Double Indemnity, Strangers on a Train, and Gaslight, Stoneham Theatre is proud to produce Jeffrey Hatcher’s new adaptation of the classic tale of Dr. Henry Jekyll who undertakes experiments aimed to cure mankind of its basic instincts. When the experiments on himself produce the savage and uncontrollable Edward Hyde, Dr. Jekyll comes face-to-face with the very nature of good and evil.
“Hatcher’s adaptation suggests that good and evil exist in all of us and blend with the various aspects of our personalities,” Director Caitlin Lowans shared. “This idea is highlighted with one actor playing Dr. Jekyll while the rest of the cast takes turns portraying Hyde.”
Tickets for tonight’s performance are $15 as part of “Thrifty Thursday” sponsored by Melrose Cooperative Bank. Patrons can line up at the Box Office starting at 6:30pm to get “Thrifty Thursday” tickets. Tonight’s performance of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde starts at 7:30pm. Tickets are based on availability.
