A must see Invisible Man comes to Harrogate
Having achieved sell out success with their previous two productions of Hyde and The Count of Monte Cristo the northern based company, Thunder Road, continue to reinvent classic novels, with a vibrant yet intimate feel.
This time they will be returning in association with Harrogate Theatre with their brand new show The Invisible Man, 27 April – 6 May.
With the prophetic tale of a scientist destroyed by his astonishing discovery having captured imaginations for 120 years, this will be the first time H.G Wells novel, The Invisible Man, appears on the stage.
Winter 1897. A stranger comes to the quiet English village of Iping, emerging from a snow-storm like some ghostly apparition. Nameless and faceless, this ‘devil without eyes’ shuts himself away from curious locals to carry out his mysterious experiments. Before long, the villager’s curiosity has given way to a deadly, unseen terror...
The title role will by played by Thunder Road’s co-founder Alex Moran who has worked for The National Theatre’s WarHorse. He has brought WarHorse Songman Bob Fox, who will produce the show’s music. The adaptation itself is by Rob Johnston, winner of The Kings Cross Award for New Writing for his play Einstein’s Daughter at The Courtyard Theatre, London. Rob’s compelling new play, Spring Reign, exploring the origins of The Syrian Civil War, is also on at Harrogate Theatre, in the week following The Invisible Man.
