Man is, on the whole, less good than he imagines himself or wants to be. Everyone carries a shadow, and the less it is embodied in the individual's conscious life, the blacker and denser it is. - C.G. Jung

In Jeffrey Hatcher's stage play of this classic tale, Dr. Henry Jekyll is tormented by his own creation, Mr. Edward Hyde. Mesmerizing and intense, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde delves into jealousy, paranoia, and addiction and reveals the monster that may lie beneath the surface. As his psyche splinters Jekyll must confront Hyde - himself - and the darkness that exists in both men.
