Around the World in 80 Days
Adventure awaits this festive season – trek across Europe, trail across Asia and soar through the Americas as Jules Verne’s classic tale is brought to life in a rip-roaring new musical adaptation by Kate Ferguson & Susannah Pearse - the writers of The Octagon's previous festive productions Treasure Island and A Christmas Carol.
Wealthy and eccentric entrepreneur Phileas Fogg makes a bet that they can travel around the world in just 80 days…but surely it can’t be done? With their entire fortune on the line, Phileas sets off from London in a wild dash across the globe.
Travelling through fascinating and exotic lands, Phileas and friends get into all sorts of adventures as they jump from boats to trains to elephants and back again, battling storms, bandits and Scotland Yard. Will the intrepid travellers make it back to London in time or will the bet be lost?
