The Invisible: Agents of Ungentlemanly Warfare

Written, composed, and directed by Jonathan Christenson
a Catalyst Theatre production

October 23 – November 3, 2024

France, 1940. After months of training and successful assignments, seven exceptional female SOEs (Special Operative Executives) are dropped into their most dangerous mission to date. Risking their lives for the fate of the nation, The Invisible embark on perilous missions of sabotage, propaganda, and espionage — helping to bring down the greatest threat of their time, only to go completely unseen.

From the writer and director behind the smash-hits Vigilante and Nevermore comes a new musical tour-de-force, inspired by the stories of real-life female SOEs. This genre-busting mash-up of historical research, film-noir, graphic novels, and musical theatre is a contemporary portrait of brave women who risked it all to fight during WWII–only to find themselves betrayed by the very world they believed they were fighting for.

Recommended for 12+

“…The Invisible [is] unlike any other piece of musical theatre you’ll see this year.”
– Stir Vancouver

“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, the late, great director of Cabaret.”
– The Globe & Mail

“It feels not only like an immensely entertaining musical, but a conversation about digging deep, and what matters.”
– Edmonton Journal
