Radio performance of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (April 24, 2009)
LebriVox's radio performance of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson, in 10 parts.
Comments: The audio is very clear and the woman reading is easy to hear, but she speaks in monotone, taking away from the inherent drama of the story.
Old Time Radio's performance of the Betty Roland adaptation
A radio performance of Betty Roland's adaptation of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, from 1932, in 10 parts.
Comments: A rather different retelling, in that it follows Jekyll's full life, from childhood on up, and instead of falling for Carew’s daughter, he falls for Utterson’s. It’s very focused on the drama and romance.
