Jekyll asks Lanyon to bring Agnes to him, but Jekyll turns into Hyde before Lanyon returns. Utterson and Newcome arrive to arrest Hyde; knowing he can no longer transform back into Jekyll, Hyde commits suicide by taking poison.
The play was produced at the Boston Museum , Broadway's Madison Square Theatre and the Lyceum Theatre in London's West End with the following casts: .
The Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson wrote Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde in when he was living in Bournemouth , on England's south coast.
Mansfield was looking for material that would help him achieve a reputation as a serious actor in the U.
He had played dual roles as a father and son in a New York production of the operetta Rip Van Winkle ,  and saw another acting opportunity in playing Jekyll and Hyde.
Although U. Performing in Boston, he asked a local friend, Thomas Russell Sullivan, to write a script. After just two weeks of rehearsals , the play opened at the Boston Museum on May 9, , as the first American adaptation of Stevenson's novella.
Palmer , opened at the Madison Square Theatre on Broadway on September 12 of that year. Sullivan invited Stevenson, who had moved to the U. Hyde was performed for a final season matinee on June 29, In March , while Mansfield's company was touring, Daniel E.
Bandmann staged a competing production with the same name at Niblo's Garden. The English actor Henry Irving saw Mansfield's performance in New York and invited him to bring the play to London, where Irving managed the Lyceum Theatre in the West End.
Although the play was scheduled to premiere in September , Mansfield discovered that Bandmann planned to open his competing version in August, and he rushed to recall his company from vacation.
Mansfield also worked with Irving and Stevenson's publisher, Longmans, to block Bandmann's production and those of other competitors.
Longmans brought legal actions against the unauthorized versions; its efforts blocked a William Howell Poole production from opening at the Theatre Royal in Croydon on July That day, Fred Wright's Company B presented one performance of its adaptation at the Park Theatre in Merthyr Tydfil before it was also closed.
Hyde opened at the Lyceum on August 4. Although Irving attended some of Mansfield's rehearsals, he did not remain in London for the opening.
Mansfield worked with Irving's stage manager , H. Lovejoy, and "acting manager" Bram Stoker who would later write the horror novel Dracula to stage the production.
The Lyceum production of Dr. Hyde was scheduled to close on September 29, after which Mansfield intended to stage other plays. Initially, he followed this plan, introducing productions of Lesbia and A Parisian Romance at the beginning of October.
However, Mansfield soon reintroduced Dr. Hyde to his schedule and added performances between October 10 and October On August 7, , three days after the Lyceum opening of Dr.
Hyde , Martha Tabram was discovered stabbed to death in London's Whitechapel neighborhood. On August 31 Mary Ann Nichols was found, murdered and mutilated, in the same neighborhood.
Press coverage linking these and other Whitechapel murders of women created a furor in London. The public and police suspected that some or all of the murders were committed by one person, who became known as Jack the Ripper.
Some press reports compared the unidentified killer with the Jekyll and Hyde characters, suggesting that the Ripper led a respectable life during the day and became a murderer at night.
The letter writer, who had seen him perform as Jekyll and Hyde, thought that Mansfield could easily disguise himself and commit the murders undetected.
Mansfield attempted to defuse public concern by staging the London opening of the comedy Prince Karl as a charity performance, despite Stoker's warning that critics would view it as an attempt to obtain favorable publicity for the production.
Hyde in London because of the murders, financial reasons are more likely. He left London, taking his company on a tour of England.
In December they performed Dr. Hyde and other plays in Liverpool and Derby , then continued to other cities and performed other plays. When Mansfield left the UK in June , he was deeply in debt because of production losses there.
Irving sued, winning the UK performance rights to Dr. Hyde ,  and Mansfield never performed in England again. In the U. He fell ill soon afterward, and died on August 30 of that year.
The play was closely associated with Mansfield's performance; a retrospective on adaptations of Stevenson's works indicated that Sullivan's Dr.
Hyde was no longer performed after Mansfield's death. His son, Harry Brodribb Irving , produced a new adaptation by J.
Comyns Carr in Fish, made available in for stock theater performances as Dr. Hyde, Or a Mis-Spent Life. Although Mansfield's transformations between Jekyll and Hyde included lighting changes and makeup designed to appear different under colored filters, it was mainly accomplished by the actor's facial contortions and changes in posture and movement.
Theories included claims that Mansfield had an inflatable rubber prosthetic, that he applied chemicals, and that he had a mask hidden in a wig, which he pulled down to complete the change.
In contrast to the novella, in which the physical transformation of Jekyll into Hyde is revealed near the end, most dramatic adaptations show it early in the play, because the audience is familiar with the story.
As one of its first adapters, Sullivan worked in an environment where the transformation would still shock the audience, and he held the reveal until the third act.
There were several differences between Sullivan's adaptation and Stevenson's novella. Stevenson used multiple narrators and a circular narrative allowing material presented at the end to explain material presented at the beginning , but Sullivan wrote a linear narrative in chronological order.
Although Stevenson used science to make the Jekyll-Hyde transformation plausible to readers, Sullivan could rely on the onstage transformation.
The playwright strengthened the contrast between Jekyll and Hyde compared to Stevenson's original; Sullivan's Hyde was more explicitly evil, and his Jekyll more conventional.
In Stevenson's novella Jekyll is socially isolated and neurotic , and his motives for experimenting with the potion are ambiguous.
His Jekyll is socially active and mentally healthy, and his motives for creating the potion are benign;  Sullivan's Jekyll tells Lanyon that his discovery will "benefit the world".
Sullivan's version added women to the story; there were no significant female characters in Stevenson's original. In Stevenson's novella and Sullivan's play, Hyde is said to have committed unspecified crimes.
Interpreters began to identify the crimes as sexual, positing sexual repression as a factor in Hyde's characterization.
In some interpretations of the novella, the male characters represent patriarchal society, with Hyde signifying its moral corruption.
Other interpretations suggest that the lack of female companionship for the male characters indicates their latent homosexuality and that Hyde is engaged in homosexual activity.
These interpretations are harder to apply to the play because of Sullivan's addition of female characters and heterosexual relationships.
Reviewing the play's initial production at the Boston Museum, The Boston Post "warmly congratulated" Sullivan on his script and said that it overcame the difficulties of turning Stevenson's story into a drama with only a few flaws.
Mansfield's performance was praised for drawing a clear distinction between Jekyll and Hyde, although the reviewer found his portrayal of Hyde better crafted than his portrayal of Jekyll.
Audience reaction was enthusiastic, with long applause and several curtain calls for Mansfield. The Broadway production also received positive reviews.
The Lyceum production received mixed reviews, complimenting Mansfield's performance but criticizing the play as a whole.
The reviewer complimented Mansfield's acting, especially in the transformation scenes, but said that his performance could not salvage the play.
Hyde was a milestone in the careers of Sullivan and Mansfield. Sullivan left his banking job to become a full-time writer.
He wrote three more plays none successful , several novels, and a two-volume collection of short stories, many of which have Gothic elements. Sullivan attempted one more stage collaboration with Mansfield, a drama about the Roman emperor Nero , but they became estranged after its failure.
