"Audiences across the country and beyond know Christenson's Catalyst work for its distinctively theatrical, category-resistant esthetic; bold physicality and movement, poetic text, unusual marriage with music, inseparable from imaginative design."

-Liz Nicholls, Edmonton Journal

The Invisible- Agents of UNgentlemanly Warfare

A Catalyst Theatre Production.

Book Music & Lyrics by Jonathan Christenson Directed by Jonathan Christenson Designed by Bretta Gerecke Choreographed by Laura Krewski Sound & Music Production by Matthew Skopyk                                       

Europe, 1939. Adolf Hitler's armies are conquering nation after nation, and in the face of the Nazi threat, Canadian millionaire William Stephenson convinces Churchill and Roosevelt to combine forces in a joint covert effort. Stephenson assembles an elite team of spies, including the unlikeliest of agents: six irrepressible young women. THE INVISIBLE- AGENTS OF UNGENTLEMANLY WARFARE  is their story, a "spy noir musical" that seeks to answer: just who were these bold women and why would they sacrifice their very lives for a war that refused to accept them or recognize them? Catalyst Theatre, creators of the hit musical NEVERMORE, brings another dazzling world premiere to Vertigo Theatre.
