Invisibility is a poignant tale about alienation and the search for meaning in modern urban society—various people on the margins of society seeking to connect with others in juxtaposition with the tale of a man searching for the secret to make himself invisible.

Drawing from diverse sources of Chinese literary classics and graffiti as modern social commentary, this critically-acclaimed play by Quah Sy Ren takes you on a voyeuristic ride towards urban myth.

Invisibility was first staged in Mandarin in 1996 at the Substation (presented by The Necessary Stage); it received good reviews. Subsequently, it was brought to the Ping Fong Experimental Theatre Festival in Taiwan where it was highly acclaimed. In September 2000, Drama Box (a Chinese theatre group) restaged the play.
