A thrilling tale of derring do in WWII. Repressed housewife, Mrs Bishop, is just the person to help the Resistance – but who is this mysterious lady and will we actually meet her?

In Invisible Woman Kate Cook turns her hand at playing everyone from 15 year old Cecily, the swing dancing dreamer, to sadistic, Herr Von Schnerkel, a General of Hitler’s Gestapo and many other dodgy characters along the way. A story telling tour de force, Invisible Woman is a funny, touching portrayal of one woman’s journey into freedom and adventure.

Kate Cook plays everyone apart from the main character, Invisible Woman, who is brought to life by the characters around her – hence her code name in occupied France, Invisible Woman.

Using minimal props or set Kate Cook creates an entire world around Invisible Woman who is vividly portrayed without ever materialising. This is a unique, entertaining and stimulating show that will be enjoyed by audiences of all ages.

Writer and performer, Kate Cook, a big hit on the comedy circuit, is a Funny Women semi-finalist, a regular Funny Women columnist and creator of comedy duo sensation Doodle and Bug. Her credits include Olivier Award winning West End show The 39 Steps (Criterion Theatre), Quality Street (Finborough Theatre), 1936 (Arcola Theatre), A Man For All Seasons (York Theatre Royal) and Tom Geens multi award winning film You’re the Stranger Here (Film 4).

Invisible Woman was inspired by Kate’s research at the Mass Observation Archive at the Keep in Brighton. MO is a fascinating collection of diaries written by ordinary people since 1936.

Director Helen Donnelly’s credits include, Pig Girl (Finborough Theatre), Scum Bags (Rich Mix), Corrections (Intermission Theatre), Sticks and Stones (REDfest at Old Red Lion), About A Goth (Black Box Belfast), Far Away (Crescent Arts Centre Belfast) Lead Astray (MAC Belfast), Forgotten Footfalls (Ulster Hall Group Space Belfast) and Sitting Up for Michael (Northern Irish Tour)
