Jekyll and Utterson 2013 Broadway revival

Utterson (right) talking with Jekyll

Mr Gabriel John Utterson Esq. is a lawyer, confidant, supporter, and life long friend of Henry Jekyll. He is an upstanding man, regarded well by his peers. Serious, somewhat sombre attitude and not given to laughter or joviality, but has an underlying humour. Likely worked his way up the ranks of society, rather than was born into wealth. He is a gentleman, first and last. Jekyll is his equal both intellectually and in standing and they have an ease when together. He has no pretensions, thus he is not a prude or self-righteous, although can be prudent and cautious when warranted.

Source materialEdit

In the original book Utterson is the character which the narrator focuses on, following his quest to discover the identity of Edward Hyde. Utterson is described as a measured, and at all times emotionless bachelor who nonetheless seems believable, trustworthy, tolerant of the faults of others, and indeed genuinely likeable. However Stevenson in the book hints Utterson has old secrets.
