Editorial Reviews

In this classic allegory of madness and addiction, talented actor Donald Pickering's strong, rich voice imbues both character and emotion with high color. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, by Robert Louis Stevenson, is the now-familiar tale of Dr. Jekyll, a scientist who creates a drug concoction that completely changes his personality. He finds lurking inside himself the evil character of the violent Mr. Hyde. Although Jekyll can see the drug's destructive effects, he becomes addicted to it, and can't help himself from turning into his own shadow self. Pickering infuses this beloved tale with heightened drama.

Publisher's Summary

Dr. Jekyll is a caring doctor who experiments with drugs because he's certain that within each man lurk impulses for both good and evil. He soon discovers a drug to liberate the evil side within himself, becoming the hard drinking, woman-chasing Mr. Hyde. Jekyll quickly becomes addicted to the formula, unable to control the violent and unstable Mr. Hyde.
