Great Postive Press from Timeout Chicago for THE DREAM JOURNAL OF DOCTOR JEKYLL


Collaboratively penned by the Mammals’ committee of writers yet surprisingly cohesive, Jekyll is a grotesque, hilarious play-within-a-play. Professor Oliver Mastodon Peale is in possession of the authentic journal of Dr. Henry Jekyll. With the help of his faithful servant Hunch Front (yes, the opposite of a hunchback), Peale presents the contents of this tortured tome via a team of hypnotized somnambulists, used, we’re told, because their zombie-like state renders a performance superior to that of mere actors... Their quest involves love found and lost, blood rituals, demon possession, and a fair number of cunnilingus and rape jokes... the audacity of the jokes, the beautiful Victorian costumes and set, and the spot-on performances make for an engrossing night.
