THE DREAM JOURNAL OF DOCTOR JEKYLL - Professor Oliver Mastodon Peale invites you to view his cabinets of wonder where you will witness his troupe of sleepwalkers hypnotized into the belief that they are characters from the pages of The Dream Journal of Doctor Jekyll.

Who or what was Dr. Henry Jekyll? When police detectives arrived at the apartments of Dr. Jekyll, they found his body completely eviscerated in the bedchamber and resting on the table beside his midnight oil was a tattered and torn journal filled with imagery so bizarre that the police assumed it to be a catalog of the doctor's dreams. But was it? Is this journal memoir or fantasy? Professor Peale invites his audience to analyze the journal's cryptic narrative while Peale's pet somnambulists reenact the feverish stories inside The Dream Journal of Doctor Jekyll.

Forget what you know from the penny dreadful written by Robert Louis Stevenson. The Dream Journal of Doctor Jekyll exposes the legendary figure in a manner more faceted, more fantastical than ever before. Prepare for a pageant populated with Conjoined sisters, Schizophrenics, Parasitical Twins, Deviant "Hunchfronts", rabid felines and diabolical entities from the ‘other side’
