Around the World in 80 Days


Tilted Wig presents York Theatre Royal’s production of Around The World in Eighty Days
By Jules Verne, Adapted and directed by Juliet Forster

Join this raggle-taggle band of travelling circus performers as they embark on their most daring feat yet: to recreate the adventures of Phileas Fogg as he sets off on his race around the world.

But wait… who is this Nellie Bly biting at his heels? We can’t have an actual real-life woman win this race!

Sit back and enjoy these skilled performers traverse every country,  embrace each character and navigate each mode of transport as fact clashes with fiction in this madcap adventure around the globe.
