The Invisible Man





Queen’s Theatre produces world premiere of a new adaptation of H.G.Wells’ The Invisible Man

The Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch is delighted to be producing an exhilarating world premiere of a new adaptation of H.G.Wells’ sci-fi classic, The Invisible Man. This gripping thriller opens on Halloween and brings the theatre’s autumn season to a close. It runs from 27 October 18 November.

As the 19th Century draws to a smoggy close, in a small room on Great Portland Street, scientist Jack Griffin discovers something that has, quite literally, never been seen before. Later, the arrival of a sinister figure wrapped in bandages in a small village in West Sussex sends the locals’ tongues wagging and suspicions racing. After a series of mysterious incidents, fears of the faceless man turn to terror and the villagers attempt to hunt him down – can Jack, plagued by his own obsession for power, find safety and return to normality?

The cast includes Phil Adèle (Little Shop of Horrors, Selladoor UK tour; Red Dwarf, Dave); Sophie Duval (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, West End; Anne Boleyn & As You Like It, Shakespeare’s Globe); Nicholas Goode (Of Mice And Men, Birmingham Repertory Theatre); Paul McEwan (The Seven Acts of Mercy & The Two Noble Kinsmen, Royal Shakespeare Company; Peaky Blinders, Tiger Aspect/BBC); William Oxborrow (Guys and Dolls, West End; Sweeney Todd, Tim Burton); Matthew Spencer (1984, West End & International Tour; The Woman in Black, West End & Tour); Matthew Woodyatt (One Man Two Guvnors, West End, UK & International Tour; War Horse (original cast), National Theatre) and Eleanor Wyld (Don Juan in Soho, West End; The Alchemist & Dr Faustus, Royal Shakespeare Company).

This breath-taking adaptation of H.G. Wells’ iconic novella is written by award-winning theatre-maker Clem Garritty (Don’t Wake The Damp, Kill the Beast) and directed by Ryan McBryde (Before The Party, Salisbury Playhouse). This production will transport audiences into a Victorian world of science, live music and illusion as The Invisible Man disappears before their very eyes!
