If you had the power of invisibility what would you do? Would you use it for good or for personal gain?   

A Northern Stage production

Book now  Access  

Griffin is a frustrated young man from the North East, with a troubled past and violent thoughts inside his head. He claims he has discovered the power of invisibility. But Griffin’s ‘powers’ have led to him being placed into Government care. After all, a normal, ill educated kid can’t just invent invisibility. Even Dr. Sara Kemp, a promising young therapist can’t convince him to tell the truth about his talent. Griffin is thrown into a downward spiral of anger and eventually into a fatal ‘reign of terror’.

Following the sell-out success of The War of the Worlds and The Hound of the Baskervilles, Northern Stage presents an electrifying new production adapted from H.G. Wells’ science fiction classic, featuring a new take on one of the most iconic characters in horror fiction. Exploring themes of exploitation, establishment and truth, investigating the conflict between power and morality, The Invisible Man questions who is really invisible in Great Britain 2020?

Preview performance: Thu 10 Sep, 8pm

Preview performances give audiences the opportunity to be one of the first to see a new show. During previews, the show is still being developed and changes may still be made ahead of the official press night. As the show is still being developed, tickets are a little cheaper than our regular prices. We will always try to give you the best experience no matter what show you attend but if there are a few hitches on the night then we appreciate your patience and goodwill while we polish the show.
