The next production to open at the Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch is a new adaptation of H.G Wells’ sci-fi classic The Invisible Man, playing from 27 October to 18 November 2017.
The 19th Century draws to a smoggy close and in a small room on Great Portland Street, scientist Jack Griffin discovers something that he 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?
Directed by Ryan McBryde, this new production of the thriller has been adapted for the stage by theatre-maker Clem Garritty and takes audiences into a world of science, live music and illusion. Starring in the production will be Phil Adèle, Sophie Duval, Nicholas Goode, Paul McEwan, William Oxborrow, Matthew Spencer, Matthew Woodyatt and Eleanor Wyld.
The Invisible Man will feature designs by Lily Arnold, lighting by Nic Farman and sound by Rebecca Applin.
