Around the World in Eighty Days, adapted by Laura Eason from Jules Verne’s classic novel, will have its London premiere at the St James Theatre in November 2015.
The majestic, 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.
Having been performed across the globe, this Christmas Laura Eason’s celebrated adaptation of one of the world’s most beloved tales arrives in London in a dazzling new production directed by Lucy Bailey. A cast of eight play over 100 characters in this imaginative, high-spirited escapade for all the family; including six trains, five boats, four fights, three dances, two circus acts and an elephant!
“Pure, unadulterated magic. A high-spirited, imagination-filled escapade… Laura Eason’s exceptionally graceful adaptation of the Jules Verne classic manages to be both wise and fun-filled. A show that should sail the world. Highly recommended.” Chicago Sun-Times
