    The Invisible Return!
    Playing at The Grand Theatre in London, Ontario
    January 16-Feb 3, 2024

    France. 1940. After months of training and successful missions, The Invisible are sent on one of their most dangerous missions to date. Seven exceptional female operatives risk their lives to fight a dangerous war of sabotage, propaganda and espionage — breaking with decorum and defying expectations, these women achieve the impossible, helping to bring down the greatest threat of their time, only to go completely unseen. This genre-busting mash-up of historical research, film-noir, graphic novels, and musical theatre is a contemporary portrait of brave women who risked their lives to fight during WWII–only to find themselves betrayed by the very world they believed they were fighting for.

    Inspired by the stories of real life female SOE’s, The Invisible is a musical tour-de-force.

     

    DEVELOPED WITH SUPPORT FROM THE NATIONAL ARTS CENTRE’S
    NATIONAL CREATION FUND.
    Development of The Invisible has also been supported by Vertigo Theatre.
     

    The Invisible played at Keyano Theatre, and its premiere production was held at Vertigo Theatre in the spring of 2019. In February 2020, the production had a two-week run a the Maclab Theatre in Edmonton. In 2022, the show toured to Vancouver where it played at The York Theatre, presented by The Cultch.

    • “The Invisible is a deliciously dramatic story inspired by women whose heroic acts have, until now, gone unsung.”
      - The Gateway
    • “This show takes a dash of Captain America, a dollop of Agent Carter, and a fistful of Wonder Woman, and adds the sensibility of Bob Fosse.”
