Grey Dog Theatre, ‘definitely a company to watch out for’ (Young Perspective), use puppetry, physical theatre and live music to boldly reimagine HG Wells’ science fiction classic The Invisible Man, for a digital world full of invisible men. Combining the Victorian original with a contemporary vision, Invisible explores some of what it means to be anonymous and how it might affect our treatment of each other. Returning to the fringe following 2017’s triumphant Beasts and Beauties, Grey Dog Theatre turn their hands to another literary classic, with thrillingly theatrical and thought provoking results.

Saw this show twice and really liked it both times, I liked the closeness of the actors to the audience in the theatre, I could really see the actors faces and expressions. I liked the way the behaviour of being horrible and cruel to each other is challenged and not accepted by these young yet influential actors. One of my two favourite Fringe shows, loved it.

A smart, gripping retelling of HG Wells' Invisible Man with puppetry and energetic performances. Woven into a modern tale, it's a relevant reminder of the power of anonymity. Go see it before they finish!

Great show by a set of very talented young actors.
Love the way an old story is given a modern take - very current and thought provoking.

What an amazing production! A group of very talented young people with a thought provoking tale of the dangers of anonymity on social media. Demonstrated through the use of music, puppets and mobile phone displays with reference to HG Wells The Invisible Man, this is well written and very current for today’s generation. Well done to all- we thoroughly enjoyed it.

What an amazing show! A wonderfully written and directed performance by refreshing and talented young actors showing the parallels between the anonymity of HG Wells invisible man and the current day anonymity of internet trolling. Fast-paced and engaging show. Well done.

Such a clever show linking the old classic story to the age of social media. Great acting, thought provoking and definitely a winner! Don’t miss this first class show for a different and entertaining hour. Well done Grey Dog Productions!

Saw this top, top show on Saturday 3rd. Highly recommend. Very thought provoking and cleverly executed.
The way they bring HG Wells bang up to date is brilliant.
One of the most intelligent shows and enjoyable shows we’ve seen at the Fringe this year...
