Come and travel Around the World in 80 Days at Buxton Opera House this Easter holidays!

Based on the novel by Jules Verne and adapted and directed by Juliet Forster, this brand-new, fun and colourful comedy drama tells the story of Around The World In Eighty Days as you’ve never seen it before.

A band of travelling 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.

Watch the drama and hilarity unfold, as two tales intertwine in a riotous romp around the globe.
