Rover Dramawerks presents – Chemical Imbalance: A Jekyll & Hyde Play
October 10, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - October 26, 2019 @ 3:00 pm$18 – $24
Rover Dramawerks continues their 19th Season with the dark yet farcical comedy Chemical Imbalance: A Jekyll & Hyde Play by Lauren Wilson. The play will be at Rover’s theatre in Plano, located in Ruisseau Village at 221 W. Parker Rd, Suite 580, at the northwest corner of Parker and 75. Performances run October 10-26 on Thursdays and Fridays at 8:00 p.m. and on Saturdays at 3:00 and 8:00 p.m.
A darkly comic adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, this is a fast-paced romp about men and women tightrope walking the line between aristocracy and depravity, and between the twin spectres of good and evil. Cameron McElyea takes on the Jekyll/Hyde roles, with Kristin Sutton Ford as his love interest Rosamunda Dewthistle. Sue Goodner is his mother Euphronia Jekyll, Alex Moore is his sister Ambrosia, and Art Kedzierski is his best friend Xavier. Sara Snyder plays identical – yet good and evil – twins Penelope and Calliope, with Andi Allen as Lady Throckmortonshire. Lynsey Hale and Stephanie Felton round out the cast as the all-knowing servants Ivy and Plodgett. Moore and Kedzierski are also featured as policemen, adding yet another layer to the madness. “The humor is nonstop, but cannot cover the highly sinister aspects of the plot…” —San Francisco Bay Times.
