Around the World in 80 Days
AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS
By Mark Brown, adapted from Jules Verne
“I shall bet twenty thousand pounds… that I will make the tour of the world in eighty days or less. That is, in nineteen hundred and twenty hours, or one hundred and ﬁfteen thousand two hundred minutes.”
The punctual and particular Phileas Fogg and his faithful manservant Passepartout race against the clock with the incompetent Detective Fix hot on their heels. Typhoons, runaway trains and a terrifying Apache tribe are amongst the tribulations they encounter as they travel to exotic and far-ﬂung corners of the world – Suez, Singapore and San Francisco to name but a few. Join Jenny Wren Productions on their slightly more local journey as they tour around the open-air venues of Gloucestershire in a few less than 80 days. 5 actors play 39 characters in this fun-packed, fast-paced, family-friendly adventure from the company that brought you The Three Musketeers and A Child in the Forest.
