When the philanthropic, genial Dr. Jekyll becomes intensely submersed in the problems of good and evil and their affects on the nature of man, his deliberations soon drive him into his laboratory. There, he pursues to answer a question that has become his obsession: can the two opposing forces be separated?

His experiments produce an astonishing drug that draws out the evil side of his own nature: the evil Mr. Hyde. At first, an antidote restores the physician to his better self. But once realized, Mr. Hyde grows more and more powerful and resistant to restraints. Ultimately, he commits an atrocity, which to the mild-mannered doctor would be unthinkable.

Inspired by a bad dream, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde reflects the Victorian preoccupation with science and with questions raised by scientific discoveries. Download and start listening now!

    " I liked the experiment, and the creation of Mr. Hyde, it was rally interesting. I think we all have a Mr. Hyde inside of us, or a Dr. Jekyll, depending of the side we want to show to the world. "

    " If you're in the mood for some good Victorian melodrama, you can't go wrong with Robert Louis Stevenson. I'd particulary recommend "Thrawn Janet" and "Markheim." Spooky! "
