H.G. Wells’ classic tale, according to press notes, is "retold in a joyous, comedy music hall spectacular, packed with magical entertainment. Set in the rustic village of Iping, the local inhabitants recount the mysterious happenings of the week that the sinister Griffin arrived wrapped in bandages and with a distinctly unsociable manner."
The production will also feature illusions by Paul Kieve, set designs by Paul Farnsworth, costume designs by Matthew Wright, lighting by Jason Taylor, music by Steve Edis, sound by Gareth Owen and choreography by Sam Spencer-Lane.
