Stage Coach Theatre Announces a New World Premiere INVISIBLE EDDIE
Stage Coach Theatre Announces a New World Premiere: Invisible Eddie
A British Comedy Written and Directed by Award Winning Boise Playwright Becky Kimsey
Invisible Eddie is a hilarious new comedy about Eddie; a timid introvert still living in his aunt Mary's flat in London. When he loses his job, Mary and her fiancé George decide to have Eddie hypnotized to make him feel invincible around strangers. Unfortunately, the Hypnotist (who has had a few too many) mistakenly convinces Eddie that he is "invisible" around strangers instead. Throw in a cockney superintendent, a lustful landlady, a blustering boss, a blind Bonny and a baited barkeep at the Cock and Poppy Pub and you've got yourself a cracking good British Comedy!
The World Premiere of Invisible Eddie is set to open at Stage Coach Theatre on February 28 th and will run for three weeks closing on March 14 th . The Invisible Eddie cast features: Triston Jackson, Jeanna Vickery, Curtis Ransom, Kevin Kimsey, Erin Edwards, Deanna Hamilton and Jane Crowe.

Each of her previous World Premieres; The Baker's Dozen (Boise Little Theater 2019), Gladys Nights (Stage Coach Theatre 2018) and Playing Bridge (Stage Coach Theatre 2019) have been awarded "Best Production" and "Best Director" by the respective producing theaters.
In 2017, Becky Kimsey and a small cast and crew were asked to perform a segment of Playing Bridge for the NYNW Theater Festival at The Duke Theater on Broadway in New York City. Her team performed in front of several Theater Producers and Directors, and the performance led them all the way to the finals that year.
