Around the World in 80 Days - Theatrical ScriptCreative Classics Scripts
Based on the classic novel by Jules Verne, this play brings a sense of adventure, fun, wild antics, and can-do attitude to the stage. Mr. Phileas Fogg announces to his peers that a man can circle the globe in 80 days. When his companions ridicule his statement, Fogg wagers 20,000 pounds that he can do just that. He embarks with his faithful French servant, Passepartout, on a whirlwind tour that will take them across oceans, through jungles, and across the wild western plains of North America, battling cowboys, bandits, and hostile Native Americans.
As if the usual obstacles were not enough, a British detective has decided Fogg bears a distinct resemblance to a London bank robber, and follows Fogg and his party around the globe, hindering him as much as possible. Can they possibly make it back to London in 80 days? As Mr. Fogg is fond of saying: "Delays are predictable."
