H. G. Wells’ 1897 novel, The Invisible Man, is a canonical work of science fiction, but more people know the story than have actually delved into it. Thomas E. Fuller’s audio dramatization takes full advantage of the source material to create an irresistible yarn about science’s ability to corrupt.
A mysterious stranger named Griffin arrives in the town of Iping. His face is covered in dark glasses and bandages. Griffin’s plan to reverse the invisibility process that he invented goes awry when his secret is uncovered. Out of desperation, the mad scientist steals and kills.
Doug Kaye brings desperate intensity to his performance as Griffin in this Atlanta Radio Theatre Company adaptation, which features a haunting score from Alton Leonard.
H. G. Wells' The Invisible Man is one of the true classics of science fiction, as frightening and fresh now as it was when it was first written. For there is terror in doors that open with no one behind them, in footsteps in empty halls, in a touch in an empty room. And for Griffin, the Invisible Man, there is terror in the discovery of what it is to be both powerful - and powerless.
This is a full-cast, soundscaped audio dramatization of the H. G. Wells classic.

"Excellent Black & White Radio"
You can not go wrong with these radio shows that are like black & white films that give something you just cannot get now & I think it is the simplicity. Not over done or under done, just follows the storyline.
A full cast professionally produced & full of wit as well as gripping you to your chair. Your imagination will fly away.
H G Wells was a master of science fiction. No gloss, just the basic facts. I will look to see if I can find anymore versions of The Invisible man to add to my collection.
