A breath-taking take on H.G. Wells’ sci-fi classic filled with live music, illusion, and adventure.
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?
H.G. Wells’ iconic novella arrives on the stage in this suspenseful escapade by award-winning theatre-maker Clem Garritty (Kill the Beast).
