NSCC to Present Chemical Imbalance (A Jekyll and Hyde Play)

The Performing Arts Council of North Shore Community College (NSCC) presents Chemical Imbalance (a Jekyll and Hyde Play) by Lauren Wilson.  Performances will be held at Lynn Arts, 25 Exchange St., Lynn on December  5 & 6 at 7p.m. with matinee showings on December 7 & 8 at 3p.m. General admission is $7, $5 for students and seniors (with ID). Parental discretion is advised. 

Directed by NSCC’s Performing Arts Coordinator, Matthew Woods, this dark and comic send-up of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic tale of terror takes a satirical swing at conventional Victorian notions of gender, class and identity.

In fog-bound London, repressed impulses are ready to burst their corsets as Dr. Jekyll’s experiments in the nature of evil threaten to reveal the bloody hands beneath the gloves of the British Empire.

Everyone will love this fast-paced romp about men and women walking the line between old-fashioned respectability and utter depravity, and between the twin specters of good and evil.

Student and alumni participants include: Daniel Amirault, Van Chhay, Cameron Hinkle, Mariam Kutuusa, Giva Mata, and Maryvett Tello, all from Lynn; Jacqueline Celata, Hamilton; Sam Mattei and Daniel Parsons from Salem; Henry Pineda, Boston and Katelyn Pisano from Revere.
