A high-speed, globe-trotting comedy for all!

Following the success of last summer’s Peter Pan in Scarlet, director Theresa Heskins returns to the Playhouse with her celebrated production of Verne’s classic adventure. 

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

Kick off your summer holiday with this “remarkable” (★★★★ Guardian) adventure and marvel as a talented cast of eight play over 125 characters in this imaginative, high-spirited escapade. Featuring six trains, five boats, four fights, three dances, two circus acts and an elephant.

Duration: 2 hours 35mins with interval

Simon Friend and Kenny Wax Family Entertainment Ltd present the New Vic Theatre production in association with the Royal Exchange Theatre

By Jules Verne
Adapted by Laura Eason
Directed by Theresa Heskins
