What happens when one person becomes invisible due to their station in life and another chooses to be? They are all around us, every day; do you see them? This exploration of the classic novels by H.G. Wells and Ralph Ellison focuses on the struggles of two such people in a modern, urban setting. With a story told through music, movement, and poetry, "Invisible" dares to ask the question: What do you see? This all-ages production will show from March 7-16.
