Around The World In 80 Days

Friday 23 June–Saturday 8 July 2017

New Vic Theatre production in partnership with Kenny Wax Family Entertainment and Simon Friend and in association with Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester

Directed by Theresa Heskins

109 characters, eight actors, six trains, six boats, four fights, two dances, one storm, a circus act and an elephant will take centre stage once again as we bring back our much-loved escapade, Around The World In 80 Days!

The mysterious and fabulously wealthy Phileas Fogg wagers his life’s fortune that he can circumnavigate the globe in just 80 days. Join him and his loyal valet Passepartout, as they voyage from the misty alleys of Victorian London, across the subcontinent and on to the Wild West in a race against the clock.

Join us to see our production at its in-the-round home, before we journey all across the country. More details about where we’ll be visiting are below or visit
