On the fog-bound streets of Victorian-era London, Henry Jekyll's experiments with exotic "powders and tinctures" have brought forth his other self—Edward Hyde, a sensualist and villain free to commit the sins Jekyll is too civilized to comprehend. When Hyde meets a woman who stirs his interest, Jekyll fears for her life and decides to end his experiments. But Hyde has other ideas, and so the two sides battle each other in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse to determine who shall be the master and who his slave. With multiple Hydes portrayed by members of the cast
DR. HENRY JEKYLL (probably 40s-50s) – a respected Gentleman of Victorian England obsessed with experimenting at separating the good and bad aspects of his own personality.
ELIZABETH JELKES (30s?) – a working class chambermaid who falls in love with Mr. Hyde
4 OTHER ACTORS (one female, three male) of varying ages will play various roles throughout the play and each will also play Edward Hyde at some point in the piece.
Next Auditions for "A Tuna Christmas" will October 18th & 19th, more details to come.
