Titled Wig Presents York Theatre Royal's production of

Around The World in 80 Days

Tue 6 – Sat 10 Jun, 2023 Archive
Based on the novel by Jules Verne and adapted and directed by Juliet Forster, this brand-new, fun and colourful family production tells the story of Around The World In 80 Days as you've never seen it before.

A band of travelling circus performers 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 this is a telling of two tales; fact meets fiction as we learn the incredible true story of American journalist Nellie Bly who emulated the character of Phileas in her record-breaking trip around the world.

Watch the drama unfold as our skilled performers traverse every country, embrace each character and navigate every mode of transport, as two tales intertwine on a madcap journey around the globe.

Book now for this brand-new comedy drama that’s perfect for families who love circus, dance and adventure too!
