This book offers a compelling examination of performed adaptations of Stevenson's masterpiece, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Rose investigates how a single text, adapted many times in the past century, can serve to elucidate certain shifts in cultural attitudes. Providing an analysis of the relation between culture and performance, the author argues that Stevenson's adapters have infused the original story with concerns about issues of race, class, gender, and economics.
