AROUND the WORLD in 80 DAYS Written by Richard Cowling Adapted from the Jules Verne novel
The World of the Story In 1872, Phileas Fogg, a fastidious gentleman of independent means, wagers a fortune with his club friends that he can travel the world in exactly 80 days and return to London, England in time for Christmas. Fogg is accompanied by his servant, Passepartout, as they negotiate strange new lands, people and timetables. This Jules Verne classic tale of mistaken identity, quest for adventure and discovery of what is truly important in life is adapted by Carolina Children’s Theatre just in time for the holidays!
