Le Cas Jekyll by Christine Montalbetti

By Christine Montalbetti

Au second même où l'on croit que c'est Jekyll qui parle, c'est peut-être déjà Hyde qu'on entend.
C'est cela que raconte ce monologue, remark los angeles voix de Hyde joue des coudes pour se glisser dans celle de Jekyll et pour prendre progressivement toute l. a. position. remark elle est dans une sorte de sabotage lyrique de l. a. parole de Jekyll. remark elle l. a. submerge, los angeles rend instable.
Derrière Jekyll, il y a toujours Hyde. Et derrière Utterson, l'ami auquel on s'adresse, il y a nous. l. a. partie se joue donc à plusieurs. On a (peut-être) un seul bonhomme sur scène, mais on est beaucoup, beaucoup plus nombreux.

Christine Montalbetti a écrit le Cas Jekyll, une variation pour le théâtre de Docteur Jekyll et Mister Hyde de Stevenson, à l'intention de Denis Podalydès, qui l'a mis en scène (avec los angeles complicité d'Emmanuel Bourdieu et de Eric Ruf) et le joue (admirablement) : somptueux monologue pour un personnage double qu'interprète Denis Podalydès (de l. a. Comédie Française).
