The Cabinet of Dr Jekyll

Adapted by Andrew McKinnon

IT is fitting that a play about doppelgŠngers and duality should be in two minds about what it wants to do. On the one hand, this three-hander, written and directed by Andrew McKinnon, is a staging of the life of Robert Louis Stevenson, from sickly Edinburgh childhood to his death at the age of 44. On the other hand, it is a retelling of Stevenson's psychologically unsettling work, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, and an attempt to link the competing impulses of the repressed Jekyll and the reprobate Hyde to those of the author.
