Production photos are in for Around the World in 80 Days, currently touring the UK & Ireland.
Circus meets theatre in this brand-new adaptation of Jules Verne’s iconic story, where five cast members performs multiple roles to recreate a rag-tag band of travelling circus performers that embark on a daring mission to recreate Phileas Fogg’s race around the world.
Alex Phelps (As You Like It, Shakespeare’s Globe/CBeebies) plays the determined Ringmaster, Phileas Fogg, alongside Katriona Brown (Chum-o-logues, Southwark Playhouse), Genevieve Sabherwal (Spooky Ship, Bristol Old Vic), Wilson Benedito (50 Ways to Kill Your Lover, Amazon) and Eddie Mann (Back to The Future, Secret Cinema).
Around the World in 80 Days is adapted and directed by Juliet Forster (Cinderella, York Theatre Royal; The York Radio Mystery Plays, BBC Radio and York Theatre Royal).
Jules Verne’s original characters are transformed in Forster’s adaptation, embracing different modes of transport as they journey across the globe. Audiences can join the Ringmaster, the Acrobat, the Clown, the Trick Rider, and the Knife Thrower on their frantic race to travel Around the World in 80 Days.
The UK tour runs until July 2023. Full tour dates listed below.
