More than one hundred years ago, Robert Louis Stevenson wrote a story about a man whose experiments with the human soul have since become legend. Kindly, respected Dr. Henry Jekyll is convinced that all people have two personalities that lurk within them, so he concocts a drug to separate one person into two personalities and tests it on himself. Enter Mr. Hyde – Dr. Jekyll’s alter ego – who is as depraved and vicious as Dr. Jekyll is virtuous and kindly. Robert Louis Stevenson’s world-famous thriller explores the eternal battle between good and evil. Can Dr. Jekyll overcome Mr. Hyde? Or will he become Hyde’s next victim?
