Classic horror story
From the novella “Strange Cast of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” by Robert Lewis Stevenson.
Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher.
A new and shocking version of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale of depravity, lust, love and horror. On the fog-bound streets of Victorian-era London, Henry Jekyll’s experiments with exotic “powders and tinctures” have brought forth his other self—Edward Hyde, a sensualist and villain free to commit the sins Jekyll is too civilized to comprehend. When Hyde meets a woman who stirs his interest, Jekyll fears for her life and decides to end his experiments. But Hyde has other ideas, and so the two sides battle each other in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse to determine who shall be the master and who his slave. With multiple Hyde’s portrayed by members of the cast.

Surreal political comedy
Lubbock Community Theatre debuts its experimental “LCT After Dark” season with an
adaptation of the French surrealist classic Ubu Roi. In Ubu Roy: An American Tale, the crass,
violent, loud-mouthed, and shockingly incompetent Pa Ubu of Alfred Jarry’s fictional Poland becomes the crass, violent, loud-mouthed, and shockingly incompetent Ubu Roy of present-day America circa – oh, let’s say – 2016. Through betrayal, subterfuge, and a hefty helping of good old-fashioned B.S., Ubu Roy remarkably finds himself challenging for the highest office in the land, only to find he has a more than worthy adversary waiting in the wings to take the job for herself. Ideal for the disappointed, the jaded, and the simply fed-up, Ubu Roy is guaranteed to be “yuuuuge!”
