A mysterious man wrapped in bandages, wearing large goggles and a hat pulled tightly down over his face arrives at the small town of Iping. A series of strange, inexplicable events are traced back to the newcomer, and it soon becomes clear that appearances are deceiving. Beneath the bandages is an invisible man with the ability to wreak all manner of chaos without any fear of being apprehended! But instead of revelling in his power, when the invisible man finds himself unable to reverse the experiment, he becomes increasingly frenzied, embittered and dangerous. Will the residents of Iping be able to contain this irrepressible figure before it is too late? In H. G. Wells' science fiction classic, the fantasy of invisibility is turned on its head, and instead the perils of the condition are revealed - loneliness, alienation and the painful awareness of being different.
