Publisher's summary

First published to critical acclaim in 1886, Robert Louis Stevenson’s mesmerising thriller is a terrifying study of the duality of man's nature, and it is the book which established Stevenson's reputation as a writer.

In this Audible Original drama Stevenson’s story is transported to modern-day London, and instead we meet Henrietta Jekyll and Eleanor Hyde.

Dr Jekyll, a charming doctor, explores the possibility of dividing the dark and light side of her personality, but in doing this she creates a monster, Eleanor Hyde. For many years she manages to live under the radar, keeping her dark secret unknown to those around her. However, gradually her evil side gains strength until Dr Jekyll is overwhelmed by Eleanor Hyde, to disastrous consequences. An exploration of human duality and forces of good and evil, this modern retelling is compelling and eerie and retains the disturbing nature of the original text.

Starring Holliday Grainger (Cinderella, My Cousin Rachel, Strike) and Carla Mendonça (My Parents Are Aliens, So Awkward).

Also starring Tim Bentinck, Bill Fellows, Hugh Fraser, Holliday Grainger, Clive Mantle, Carla Mendonca, Katarina Olsson, Miranda Raison and Hugh Ross.

About the Creator

Robert Louis Stevenson was born November 13, 1850 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Stevenson was sickly as a child, making school attendance difficult. When not being tutored at home, he spent his time reading and writing stories. While at Edinburgh University, he rejected his father’s wish that he become an engineer, declared himself an atheist, began wearing bohemian clothing, and embarked upon a writing career. As a poet and novelist, he achieved fame for stories that have delighted fans for over a century in print, on the stage, and in film. In audio, he is best known for the highly acclaimed and full-cast recordings of Treasure Island and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and also for the popularity of Kidnapped, Black Arrow, and South Sea Tales. He died December 3, 1894 in Vailima, Samoa.
