The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde
First published in 1886, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is a mystery tale about the inexorable conflict between good and evil. In this faithful adaptation by Mark Stratford, Stevenson’s gripping narrative is brought vividly to life through a combination of powerful story-telling and masterful character creation.
Gabriel John Utterson is Henry Jekyll’s lawyer and most trusted friend. Deeply concerned by a strange clause in his friend’s will, Utterson feels compelled to investigate the sinister Edward Hyde – Jekyll’s unlikely protégé. Convinced that Jekyll and Hyde’s relationship is founded on blackmail, Utterson embarks on a quest to learn more, but as he does so, he finds the truth to be far worse than he could have ever imagined.
