The Invisible

Vernon and District Performing Arts Centre 3800 - 33rd Street, Vernon, British Columbia

This genre-busting mash-up of historical research, film-noir, graphic novels, and musical theatre is a contemporary portrait of the brave women who secretly fought during WWII. Inspired by the true tale of an elite group of female agents recruited by the Allies to help bring down the Nazi war machine, this musical tour-de-force reimagines their story through a 21st Century lens.

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 with decorum and defying expectations, these women achieve the impossible, helping to bring down the greatest threat of our 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 brave women who risked their lives to fight a dangerous war of sabotage, propaganda & espionage during WWII–only to find themselves betrayed by the very world they believed they were fighting for.
