The Arts Centre Gold Coast and Hit Productions Present “Around The World in 80 Days”
The play Around the World in 80 Day is an epic, funny, madcap adaptation of the classic novel by Jules Verne. The story opens on Tuesday October 1st. 1872…at 11.57pm…and 30 seconds…with a sinister robbery taking place…Big Ben chimes midnight and within minutes the central London bank is 40,000 pounds poorer.
We never see the face of the robber. But they are fanatical about time and have a slight cough. Perhaps it is a complete coincidence our hero, honest-looking, well-turned out with good teeth, Phileas Fogg has a slight cough and is constantly checking his watch!
Perhaps it is also a coincidence he unexpectedly places a wager of 20,000 pounds with fellow members of a London gentleman’s club that he can travel the world in a mere 80 Days, and he suddenly leaves the country! He goes forth on his adventure accompanied by his newly acquired valet, Mr Passepartout.
Pursued by Scotland Yard through Europe, Africa, Australia, it is race to stay ahead of the law, stay on schedule and to race to a climatic ending that…well you’ll have the see the show to see what happens then!
“It’s such a healthy dose of Monty Python nonsense that keeps the adults tickled while the slapstick is laid on thick for the children and… it’s a merrily entertaining trip for all on board.” Metro, UK
