The Invisible Men turns H.G. Wells’ science fiction horror upside down into a fast-paced comedy, full of larger than life characters and mysterious goings on. Laura Ilinca’s new play, as much inspired by as adapted from the novel, brings an imaginative and quirky twist to this classic tale. The hapless Jack Griffin and his obsession with invisibility catapults a quiet English village into a world of spies, vodka and kidnappings, with hilarious consequences.

Griffin, a wannabe scientist, dreams of discovering the secret to invisibility. After his marriage fell apart, he moved in with his friends the Halls at The Cock & Bull Inn, in a picturesque but uneventful little village. Having little to do with their time, and lacking other bright ideas, the Halls spend their days helping Griffin plot silly revenges against his ex-wife and her new boyfriend. What could go wrong? Not much… until one day unexpected guests arrive at the inn, bringing with them an unknown number of secret agencies who seem to be quite interested in the invisibility business as well.

How can a Russian emigree, an insectologist, a wannabe scientist and two nearly-broke inn owners outsmart so many secret agents? You'll have to come along to find out... [] CLICK HERE FOR CONTENT WARNINGS & ADVISORIES []
