March 13-20, 2020
The Departments of Theatre and Stagecraft & Event Technology present
By Hal Coase
Directed by Madelyn Osborne
A lethal clash between two lives, two truths and two dreams and in this explosive, female-driven, re-imagining of the classic novella. Presented as a multi-layered story that comes hurtling towards you with a blend of heightened physical theatre, projections, music, and open-ended audience interaction. Hal Coase's Jekyll dives into society's deepest flaws and fears from identity to revenge and tackles the question when does being yourself risk those around you?
Hyde is a legendary motivational speaker turned global superstar. For the right price, she can fix any of your problems and give you the confidence to be who you've always wanted to be.
Jekyll is a lonely person and, like all lonely people, she knows this. Drawn towards the promise of total liberation that Hyde has to offer, Jekyll soon becomes obsessed with her latest idol. When Hyde meets her number one fan, their collision brings the curtain down.
Running time: approx 90 minutes
Latecomer Rules: Allowed during scene 2 (after opening movement piece) during Hyde's show until the end of that scene.
