EDMONTON- After successful tours to Keyano Theatre (Fort McMurray) and Vertigo Theatre (Calgary), Catalyst’s newest musical tour-de-force, The Invisible – Agents of Ungentlemanly Warfare, is ready to infiltrate Edmonton.
Receiving a record-breaking nine Betty Mitchell Award nominations, The Invisible is inspired by the stories of real-life female Special Operation Executives (SOE) in World War Two.
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 new ground 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 the brave women who risked their lives to fight a dangerous war of sabotage, propaganda, & espionage during WWII.
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.”
