Would you like to be someone else?

Professor Jenson yearns to be interesting, popular, not so much of a geek. It seems that scientist Maxwell Norman could have the solution... but will a transformed personality give Jenson/Hyde what he needs? The consequences of personality engineering are explored in this darkly comic one-act play.

Phyl Romeril: Stephen Balchin who in the past has written some excellent plays as well as given some award winning performances. Jenson and Hyde was an intricate piece which put Phil Braithwaite on a long lead, one on which he pulled us back and forth with laughter, an interesting personality problem. The scientific content was somewhat mesmerising and perhaps the piece needed shortening or maybe if only two plays in one session would give more time to digest more thoroughly all the contents and intentions.
