Leeds Playhouse invites you on a journey from Paris to Hong Kong as it stages Jules Verne’s classic fantasy epic Around the World in 80 Days, opening in the Pop-up theatre from 9th April.

Audiences will be transported back to the 19th century as the infamous Phileas Fogg embarks upon an extraordinary journey across four continents, causing mayhem along the way in this exhilarating production, packed with surprises, props, and fabulous laughs.

This stage adaptation will be directed by Leeds Playhouse’s award-winning Director of Creative Engagement Alex Ferris and features our of Leeds Playhouse’s Ensemble company: Robert Pickavance, Dan Parr, Joe Alessi and Darren Kuppan.

“For me, theatre is at its best when the audience is acknowledged and get to play and share in the story on stage,” explains Alex Ferris.

“We want everyone to join us on this ambitious and slightly crazy mission to tell this epic story that passes through over 10 different countries, meeting over 30 different characters, featuring daring rescues from the jaws of death, high speed chases, displays of cunning and classic British grit, and a fair share of costume changes with just our 4 actors and a handful of props.”

Around the World in 80 Days is at Leeds Playhouse from Tuesday 9th to Sunday 28th April 2019. Book online at leedsplayhouse.org.uk or call the Box office 0113 213 7700.
