Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde-A very Strange Case at Dukesbbay Productions-Tacoma

In one man’s battle between good and evil, the lines are often blurred.

This past weekend, Dukesbay Productions opened Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, playwright Jeffry Harcher’s stage adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. First published in 1886, that is to say during the latter part of the Victoria era, when moral hypocrisy was rampant and the study of the brain and behavior or what we know as psychology was turning traditional thinking upside down. It was highly controversial.
