Role # 1 Henry Jekyll
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

A doctor. His character is driven by the aim to improve the plight of those inflicted with mental illness – particularly his own father. In pursuit of this goal he attempts to distinguish what causes the swing between good and evil within man and to find a chemical formula that can separate the two in order to eliminate the “evil” element of a man’s personality. For this he requires a human subject and when the board of governors of the Hospital in which he practices reject his proposal, dismissing his claims as unlawful and blasphemous, he sets out to prove his theory by using himself as the subject.

Role # 2 Edward Hyde
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Jekyll’s alter ego - the evil portion of the man that is Jekyll – coming into existence when Jekyll tests his potion on himself. As Jekyll continues the experiments Hyde begins to take over. There is a flaw in the formula and as Jekyll fails to find the exact chemical combination to stop the process, Hyde grows stronger and Jekyll is no longer in control of when the transformations take place. Jekyll’s unconscious anger at those who have slighted him takes form as Hyde, who wreaks revenge by killing them one by one.

She is, in her own eyes, an actress who gents come to watch as part of the floor show at The Red Rat. She has to work as a whore in order to keep her room and rent. She takes things as they come, knowing that there is little better life for her, although she does dream there is. She, like all the girls at the Rat, is at the mercy of pimp and proprietor Spider.

Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Jekyll’s fiancée. Emma is the daughter of Sir Danvers Carew. Emma is a graceful, elegant young woman, with spirit and a joy of life. She is courteous, deferential and dutiful, but very much has her own mind and is slightly headstrong. In Jekyll’s company she shows a great love and has an easy, fun and flirty manner around him. She makes Jekyll smile. She is all that makes him feel wanted, loved, respected and knows she will support him in everything.

Role # 7 Sir Danvers Carew
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Sir Danvers is a genial man, who has no need to prove his standing in society or his influence over others. As Chairman of the Board at St Judes Hospital, he had, in his day, been a highly respected physician. In later years, with his knighthood, he has deferred career for retirement and highly revered enough to be allowed to preside as Chairman of the Board.

Role # 9 General Lord Glossop
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Typical military man. He is pompous, exacting and probably was a paper pusher rather than has actually seen any front line fighting in his time. Overbearing and full of his own self importance. Again, believes he is an upstanding member of society but enjoys the vices that title and money enables him to enjoy. A bully.

Role # 10 The Right Honorable
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

A Q.C. and government official. Busy man, “quick and methodical”, likely equates everything to it’s relevance to the law. He would be the guiding force on the board of governors in terms of what is lawful, so would be quick to quash anything that he deemed ill advised. Although medical testing on humans was not illegal at the time, it could bring the hospital into disrepute. Perhaps his ‘vice’ was money, bribery or corruption?

She is outspoken, to the point of rude, and has a great regard for herself and her own self-importance. Not particularly nice but likely to be on every society list as guest! She especially enjoys her jewels – pearls, diamonds etc. Very rich and finds the poor disgusting!

Role # 13 Nellie
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Nellie is a “baiter” and whore. In other words, she’s a woman who stands outside the Red Rat and entices gents into the establishment. She is glamorous (or as much as one can be). Once a whore, she has now ‘moved up’ to running the brothel and looking after the girls. Hard and rather unsympathetic to those she employs.

Role # 14 Spider
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role

Nasty, seedy and evil. He/She uses and abuses the prostitutes as well as fleecing the customers of the pub. Spider frequents the Red Rat but can be seen ‘lurking’ in the top end of town too. He/She is given to violence and will make a point with his fists rather than words. A great cameo.
