Around the World in Eighty Days

Friday 19 April–Saturday 11 May 2013

A New Vic production

by Laura Eason, adapted from the novel by Jules Verne
directed by Theresa Heskins

Director Theresa Heskins with her biggest challenge yet: Jules Verne’s epic tale of Victorian eccentricity, romance and derring-do brough to the stage in a production that’s as fast-moving as Fogg’s own race against time.

Precise, stiff, starched and very, very English, wealthy bachelor Phileas Fogg wagers that he can circumnavigate the globe in exactly 80 days. With his entire fortune on the line, he leaves London with just his wily manservant, £20,000 in banknotes, a change of clothing and his trusty pocket watch.

Racing through Europe, Asia and America, they jump from train to boat to elephant and back again, pausing only to save a beautiful Indian princess from certain death and to battle bandits, buffalo, winter, storms and Scotland Yard.

Will they make it back to London in time? Or will a world of trouble mean the bet is lost? And, having seen the whole world, can Fogg find his own heart?
