Come behind the scenes of Invisible Man at the Huntington Theatre Company, and learn more about the adaptation of Ralph Ellison's powerful American classic in an interview with adaptor Oren Jacoby, director Christopher McElroen, and the "Invisible Man" himself, Teagle F. Bougere. Click below!

Sixty years after the landmark American novel's publication, the Huntington Theatre Company presents a searing production of Ralph Ellison's epic Invisible Man. The first adaptation in any medium to be authorized by the Ellison Trust, the Jefferson Award-winning script is by Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Oren Jacoby. Christopher McElroen, award-winner and co-founder of the Classical Theatre of Harlem, directs. Teagle F. Bougere stars in the iconic title role.

This co-production, featuring actors from Boston and Washington, DC, originated at Washington, DC's Studio Theatre where the fall run was twice extended due to popular demand.

The production begins with the first line of the novel: "I am an invisible man." An unnamed, idealistic, young African-American searches for identity and his place in the world as he journeys through 1930s America - from the Deep South to a basement in the borderlands of Harlem, from a betrayal at his ivy-covered Negro college to a nightmare job in a New York paint factory, to the story's climax at a Harlem race riot. He moves through an America divided by race and class, grappling with the paradoxes of identity that have rendered him invisible.

Ellison's landmark American novel about race, power, freedom, and liberty comes to life onstage in this gripping theatrical adaptation.
