INVISIBLE EDDIE by Becky Kimsey

£5.00

Eddie is an introvert who is still living with his sister Mary in her London flat. When he loses his job, Mary and her fiancé George decide to have Eddie hypnotized to make him feel “invincible” around strangers. Unfortunately, the Hypnotherapist (who has had a few too many) mistakenly convinces Eddie that he is “Invisible” around strangers instead. Throw in a cockney super, 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!
