Around The World In 80 Days
14 – 17 September
In a joyfully frenetic whirlwind of a show, join Ian Stenlake, Pia Mirana and Grant Piro on this high speed, mad-cap, transcontinental race against the clock in the Jules Verne classic, Around The World In 80 Days.
Victorian invention takes centre stage, as the trio navigate sea storms, police chases and elephant rides on their way around the globe.
The story begins with a bank robbery by a mysterious figure. Then we are introduced to Phileas Fogg, honest-looking, well-turned out and with good teeth who proclaims before his fellow members of a London gentleman’s club that he can circumnavigate the globe in a mere 80 days. He goes forth on his adventure accompanied by his newly acquired valet, Mr Passepartout. Hot in their pursuit is Detective Fix of Scotland Yard, who thinks that Fogg is the man who robbed the bank.
With a style that incorporates classic farce, theatrical storytelling and silliness, combined with the great age of industrial invention, you will be crying with laughter at this joyful penultimate offering of GPAC’s 2016 Deakin Theatre Season.
