When Phileas Fogg and his faithful servant Passepartout board the train in London in 1875, he has only 80 days to travel round the world to win the wager between him and his friends at the great Reform Club. A grand adventure lies ahead, using conventional and more often unconventional travel arrangements; his journey will, of course, include romance, danger and surprises with the redoubtable Scotland Yard pursuing him at every turn. A cast of eight play over 100 characters in this imaginative, high-spirited escapade for all the family; including six trains, five boats, four fights, three dances, two circus acts and an elephant!Performers Robert Portal (Phileas Fogg), Simon Gregor (Passepartout), Tony Gardner (Inspector Fix), Shanaya Rafaat (Mrs Aouda), Eben Figueiredo (ensemble), Tim Steed (ensemble).
