Jekyll's Nightmare is a brand new variation on the classic Robert Lewis Stevenson story of the duality of good and evil. In this innovative retelling, good and evil outcrop, too, in the other characters. Jekyll's wife, Grace, has a sister, Pamela, who is the "black sheep" of the family. Even the Reverend Danvers, father-in-law to the Doctor, has a shadowy past. The play deftly illustrates the denouement, the never-ending presence of darkness - as Pamela initiates the corruption of another soul, continuing the eternal cycle. From the author of Four Way Split and Princess Antigone.
Sleep in Chains: Jekyll's Nightmare was originally presented under the titleDr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by the Curran Repertory Company in New York City. It was directed by Ken Terrell.
