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


Show postponed  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?


Show postponed

Due to the uncertainty as to when and how theatres will be able to start putting on live performances again, we have made the very difficult decision to postpone our autumn season. We will look to confirm new dates for this show as soon as possible.
