The New Vic Theatre’s celebrated production of Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days arrives at London’s Cadogan Hall this August, as part of a major six month tour.
Around the World in 80 Days first premièred at the New Vic Theatre in 2013 followed by a successful season at the Royal Exchange Theatre Manchester in 2014.
This production, directed by Theresa Heskins, currently artistic director of the New Vic Theatre, has been nominated for both the UK Theatre Awards’ ‘Best New Production’ and the Manchester Theatre Awards’ ‘Best Show for Children and Families’.
The 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.
An ensemble cast of eight play over 125 characters in an imaginative and physically inventive high-spirited escapade including six trains, five boats, four fights, three dances, two circus acts and an elephant.
The UK tour of Around the World in 80 Days reunites original cast members Andrew Pollard (Phileas Fogg), Michael Hugo (Passepartout), Dennis Herdman (Inspector Fix), Pushpinder Chandi (Mr Naidu) and Kirsten Foster (Mrs Aouda).
They are joined by Matthew Ganley, Simi Egbejumi-David and Joey Parsad.
Around the World in 80 Days plays at London’s Cadogan Hall from August 2 – September 2
