AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS
Adapted for the stage by Toby Hulse Directed by Terence O’Connell
Jules Verne’s novel and the films made from
it can boast a cast of hundreds. Toby Hulse’s hilariously
enjoyable and perky adaptation… makes use of three.
But oh boy, does he make them work.”
A joyfully frenetic whirlwind of a show, full of daft Victorian invention, daring
deeds and downright silliness. Three actors portray a cast of thousands in
this madcap adaptation of Verne’s globetrotting classic, bringing to life sea
storms, police chases and even elephant rides!
The story begins with a bank robbery by a mysterious figure. Then we are
introduced to Mr. Fogg, honest-looking, well-turned out and with good
teeth. He is accompanied by his newly-acquired valet, Mr. Passepartout.
Hot in their pursuit is Detective Fix of Scotland Yard, who thinks that
Fogg is the man who robbed the bank. This madcap adventure quickly
moves along on a succession of locomotives, steamers, and hilarity.
With a style that incorporates elements of The 39 Steps, classic farces,
theatrical storytelling inventiveness and madcap silliness, the sheer spirit
of theatrical imagination combines with the great age of industrial invention
to produce a piece of theatre that will have you crying with laughter as you
travel the world.
