Synopsis

When Edward Jekyll, a brilliant, young research scientist, discovers papers directly relating his family to the protagonist of Robert Louis Stevenson's novella Doctor Jekyll and Mr Hyde, he sees the world falling at his feet. If he can untangle the accompanying scribbled formula that created the ruthless Mr. Hyde, then surely all barriers to his future success will be broken forever!

With darkness and comedy in equal measure, The Last Days of Doctor Jekyll probes deep into the 21st century human psyche. Swine Flu, Euthanasia, the duality of the human being, the whole point of existence all come under examination in a truly Gothic - yet contemporary - re-interpretation of one of the world's greatest stories.
