Around the World in 80 Days

by Jules Verne, adapted by Laura Eason

directed by Jenny Eastop


1872 – Phileas Fogg wagers his fortune that he can travel around the world in 80 days.  With only his trusty valet Passepartout and his stiff upper lip Fogg battles everything 19th Century international travel can throw at him - triumphant successes and crushing disasters, peril, love and ultimately an awakening to all that the world has to offer.  But will he make it in time ??

Fast and furious fun told at breath-taking speed by an ensemble cast playing over 50 different characters

The iconic novel by Jules Verne is given a fresh new twist by screenwriter and playwright Laura Eason.  This first played as a graduation production for Drama Studio London at The Bunker Theatre in July, and transfers by popular demand for a two week run at the Drayton Arms Theatre in association with Mercurius.
