In the fall of 1885, poet, essayist, travel writer, and novelist Robert Louis Stevenson had a nightmare so terrifying that his tossing about impelled his wife to wake him. Rather than being grateful, however, Stevenson chastised his wife, barking "Why did you wake me? I was dreaming a fine bogey tale." Stevenson immediately sketched out two or three scenes and within three days he had written the first draft of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
Jekyll and Hyde was adapted for the stage by Nicholas Briggs, voice of the Daleks and Cybermen in Doctor Who, and was first presented at the Theatre Royal Nottingham on August 1, 2015. The Ivy Tech Student Productions' staging of Jekyll and Hyde, directed by Russel McGee, marks its United States premiere after a successful regional tour of the United Kingdom.
