Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
This play is of around 45 minutes duration, with a cast of 10. It is based on Robert Louis Stephenson’s novella and, whilst it makes for rather grim reading, it presents some interesting insights into human nature in the form of a mixture of observations and judgments.

Enfield: Oh yes. A doctor, Sawbones by name, arrived on the scene on being summoned and I can only say the two of us both felt that same urge to see that man go down.
Utterson: You mean, be charged with the offence?
Enfield: Well, to be honest, even worse than that. I think both the doctor and I felt the same level of revulsion towards this odious individual in front of us. Strange, really, as this Sawbones chap was about as emotional as a bagpipe and yet I could tell he had the same desire to kill this man as I!
Utterson: Good grief, Richard. That’s a bit extreme!
Enfield: Oh, you should have been there. Then you’d understand. It was like we were in the presence of Satan!
Utterson: So, what happened? I take it you didn’t take the law into your own hands?
Enfield: No, tempted as I was! When he offered ‘Name your price’ we got him for one hundred pounds
Utterson: (Interrupting) Which I’m guessing he wasn’t carrying?
Enfield: No. (Pauses) And this is the next really weird bit. He then whipped out a key which he inserted into this very doorway!
