The Art of Concoction: Jekyll & Hyde

Join us on April 16, 2014 at 7:00pm for a screening and discussion of Robert Louis Stevenson’s novella and its early adaptations.

It's time to let your dark side run free in St. Helena!

The Robert Louis Stevenson Museum will be screening the short 1912 silent film adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s novella “Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde” followed by a brief talk by Allison Fox and an open discussion with attendees. Come learn the striking history behind the constant appearance of Jekyll & Hyde in popular culture and discus how early adaptations helped influence our modern views of good and evil. 

This free evening will be a lighthearted and open discussion that will conclude with a look at Bugs Bunny’s misadventure in the same tale. 

"All human beings, as we meet them, are commingled out of good and evil: and Edward Hyde, alone, in the ranks of mankind, was pure evil.” - Robert Louis Stevenson
