Kerry Keegan
Sound Commentary, December 2010

Can you handle the unfamiliar? Is the fear of the unknown too much to handle? Science fiction great H.G. Wells asks these questions through his characters in the classic, The Invisible Man. Griffin, a fanatical scientist, has successfully manipulated his body’s chemical structure and is now invisible to the human eye. Unable to revert to his original state, he is instantly ostracized by others’ fear and is forced to lie, cheat, and steal to maintain even the poorest of lifestyles. Hurt and alone, Griffin chooses to embrace his ability to incite terror, but soon succumbs to madness and must face the mob that he has created. Daniel Philpott’s accents bring Wells’ cast to life and produce a rhythm that truly does this famous story justice.
