Dr. Heidi Jekyll
In a modern retelling of the Robert Louis Stevenson classic about duality and temptation, Slipstream Theatre Initiative is thrilled to present Dr. Heidi Jekyll. Dr. Jekyll is a talented, dedicated Midwestern pharmaceutical researcher, facing the daily struggles of sobriety. As the stresses of success and modern culture take their toll, she tries everything to keep her alter-ego from emerging. But Ms. Hyde is only ever a sip away, threatening to undo the life Dr. Jekyll has created for herself. As Dr Jekyll fights the threat of relapse, her world begins unraveling around her, leaving only the question: what is real and what is perception? Adapted from the original novella for the 21 st century by Luna Alexander and Victoria Weatherspoon, Dr. Heidi Jekyll is an honest and intimate look at the daily efforts of recovery, forgiveness, addiction and human connection.
The cast features Mandy Logsdon as Dr. Jekyll, Laura Heikkinen as Hyde, Ryan Ernst as Mr. Utterson, Mr. Poole and Dr. Carew, and Steve Xander Carson as Mr. Enfield, Mr. Guest and Dr. Lanyon. The production and adaptation is directed by Luna Alexander and Victoria Weatherspoon, with technical design and execution by Ryan Ernst, and costumes by Tiaja Sabrie. Our production includes adult themes with some strong language.
