About Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

Dr. Henry Jekyll is a brilliant scientist frustrated by dull “respectable” life in 1888 Victorian London. He creates a formula to unleash his inner bestial nature, transforming him into the brutish but oddly compassionate Edward Hyde. Hyde lives the high life while Jekyll’s middle-aged normalcy continues — until Hyde’s passions begin to turn up a body count. This intimate version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s science fiction classic is all about opening doors: to thirst for knowledge and adventure as well as to triumph and tragedy.

Jekyll-mansfield

The duality of human nature

Jekyll’s discovery of Mr. Hyde is not a unique occurrence or a distortion of his existence. Just the opposite, the other characters in the story do experience the drive to find ‘an adventurous self’ or an inner struggle between good and evil too, just perhaps in more manageable doses. This is why the original story is frequently interpreted as an examination of the duality of human nature. The inner struggle is essential, as without it, there is nothing but a violent end.

Cows are either white cows with some black, or black cows with some white. With a zebra, you can’t tell if it’s a white horse with black stripes, or a black horse with white stripes. It’s all… blended up, you know? So what are you? A black horse or a white horse?
