Stage Rights Play of the Week: The Island of Dr. Moreau

In this harrowing tale of man playing God, the mysterious Dr. Moreau challenges the limits of science and the power of the human should. Edward Prendick, a lone shipwreck survivor, finds himself on a boat with Montgomery, a failed medical student, and his cargo of savage animals. But Edward isn't safe for long — soon he is stranded on an uncharted Pacific island with Montgomery and his beasts, where he meets the brilliant scientist Dr. Moreau, whose sinister experiments have forced him to flee civilization. Edward soon discovers the terrifying results of Dr. Moreau's experiments— can he survive among Moreau's horrific creations?
