    Invisible Man: Theatre of the Mind KTWU's Theatre of the Mind presents an all-new production in the style of a 1940's radio play. Based on the classic story "The Invisible Man" by H. G. Wells, adapted by playwright Philip Grecian. In the village of Iping, in a blinding snowstorm, a heavily muffled stranger arrives at the local inn demanding a room. His head is bandaged and his eyes concealed behind blue goggles. His possessions arrive the following day - scores of strange glass bottles and boxes of books. All is well, until the landlady begins to make inquiries, the stranger loses his temper, strips off his wrappings and is... invisible! The chemicals used to achieve invisibility have begun to affect his mind, and he plans a reign of terror, using his invisibility to subjugate the village and eventually, he claims, the nation. Completely mad, the Invisible Man goes on a rampage. Not one is safe. As has been the custom with these dramas, the actors often play multiple roles and employ vintage microphones to simulate radio's Golden Age with live physical sound effects. They portray period radio performers, and so the mysterious presence of the invisible man is created through "theatre of the mind" in the imaginations of the listening audience. duration 57:36   STEREO TVG
