The Invisible Man Ignition The classic H G Wells story in a fast-paced, hilarious new adaptation by Derek Webb. 'The Invisible Man' is a 'must-see'! Produced in the same funny, fast paced style as the hit show 'The 39 Steps', this new production of the HG Wells’ classic, from Ignition Theatre, has three actors playing all the parts from vicars, to landladies, to tramps, to policemen, to sailors, to scientists, to the Invisible Man himself – as you’ll see (or maybe won’t). The thought of invisibility – and the advantages it could bring to someone – is one which has captured the imagination of millions since 'The Invisible Man' was first published. H G Well’s novel first appeared in 1897, two years after his first major success 'The Time Machine'. And, although published over a century ago, some of the themes in The Invisible man are surprisingly contemporary. There are references to terrorism and ordinary people seeming to lose control of their money when in the hands of ‘faceless bankers’ for instance. ABOUT THE PERFORMER Ignition is a new theatre company based in Wales and looks to encourage the transition of new writing from script to stage, producing plays that have both high artistic integrity and popular appeal.
