AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS

A fast paced farce for the fleet of foot!

Based on the novel by Jules Verne; Produced in association with Blue Apple Theatre, Winchester.

Mr. Phileas Fogg was, in 1872, one of the most striking members of the Reform Club. Though he always seemed to avoid attracting attention. That is until, he uttered the fateful words…

‘Gentlemen, it is now possible to travel around the World in 80 days’.

A new adaptation of Jules Verne’s epic tale brought to you in an exciting collaboration between Blue Apple and The Occasion.

Theatre Royal Winchester 16-18 June 2016 7.30pm

Blue Apple offers a year-round, professionally facilitated programme of drama and dance, a touring company, specialist sessions tailored to specific needs and integrated classes where people with and without learning difficulties work closely together.
