Dog Eared Page: The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

He put the glass to his lips, and drank at one gulp. A cry followed; he reeled, staggered, clutched at the table and held on, staring with injected eyes, gasping with open mouth; and as I looked there came, I thought, a change—he seemed to swell—his face became suddenly black and the features seemed to melt and alter—and at the next moment, I had sprung to my feet and leaped back against the wall, my arm raised to shield me from that prodigy, my mind submerged in terror. 

“O God!” I screamed, and “O God!” again and again; for there before my eyes—pale and shaken, and half fainting, and groping before him with his hands, like a man restored from death—there stood Henry Jekyll!

  1. My younger brother was just in this show in the Spring as Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde! It was amazing, very intense and spooky. He wore a long wig and everyone said he looked just like me, haha. I need to read the book though, the story is a classic for a reason. Perfect for this time of year!!
