About the Book

Imagine a world where the Stephen Lawrence Case and the Hillsborough Disaster never made it to court. Since 2012 the government has made sweeping cuts to the provision of legal aid. In this new reality, in cases from civil law to immigration, the voices of those seeking justice are in danger of never being heard.

The Invisible tells the stories of ordinary people whose access to legal aid has been denied, examining how the cuts are driving ever deeper cracks into the fabric of our society.


Rebecca Lenkiewicz's The Invisible was commissioned by the Bush Theatre, London, where it premiered in July 2015.
