NIE invites you on the greatest adventure ever imagined…

Join Phileas Fogg and his faithful servant Passepartout in their audacious plan to navigate the globe in just 80 days. With only a bag full of money, a pocket watch and a wager to win, Fogg sets out on the most celebrated literary journey of all time.

Based on Jules Verne’s famous novel and combining clowning, live music, storytelling and an international ensemble, Around the World in 80 Days takes you on a high speed, mad-cap, transcontinental, race against the clock.

One policeman, two comrades, three cab rides, four continents, five trains, six ships and just 80 days to get back!

From the makers of the sell-out family show Hansel and Gretel (Christmas 2012) which has gone on to international success.
