Around the World in 80 Days

The classic adventure novel from famed French author Jules Verne, Around the World in 80 Days was adapted for the stage by Mark Brown, an award-winning writer and actor. First published in 1873, this epic story follows Englishman Phileas Fogg as he takes a £20,000 bet that he's able to successfully travel around the world in only 80 days. Fogg begins this unheard-of journey with his servant, Jean Passepartout, in tow, and is soon followed by a detective who believes Fogg is guilty of robbery. A wild, continent-crossing adventure, of course, ensues. Allison Bibicoff directs this praised adaptation that brings five actors on stage to play to the 39 characters of this world-renowned story.
