The Jockey Club “From Page to Stage®” Programme 2015: “Around The World in 80 Days”

“Anything one man can imagine, other men can make real.”

Based on the novel by Jules Verne

It is 1872 London and a bold, yet reserved Englishman Phileas Fogg has just agreed to the then preposterous wager to circle the globe in 80 days. He enlists his newly hired French manservant, Passepartout to assist him. A Detective Fix suspects Fogg is the thief of a large bank robbery in London, and tries to thwart his journey. Things do not go easy, of course, but despite all obstacles, this magical journey leads Fogg to discover a wider world as well as his own heart.
