Around the World In Eighty Days

  • Show Information

The Anthos Young Company cast (age 11-18) return for a brand-new, globetrotting adventure!

Abigail Fortescue, an aspiring journalist determined to prove herself, thinks she may finally have her chance when she hears that Phileas Fogg, a mysterious gentleman, has bet his fortune that he can travel the around the world in eighty days.

Notepad in hand, she sets off with Fogg and his hapless assistant Passepartout to document the adventure. Unbeknownst to the three, there has been a robbery at the Bank of England and the prime suspect… Phileas Fogg himself! Now pursued by the ever-persistent Inspector Fix and a shadowy organisation bent on stopping them, can the trio arrive back in London by Christmas Eve?

Hold on to your top-hats and join the AYC as they tackle one of Jules Verne’s most famous pieces, putting their own spin on the classic tale.

Exeter Northcott Theatre and Le Navet Bete's Dick Whittington artwork. Background: a foggy panorama photo of the city of London, with iconic buildings such as Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, and St Paul's Cathedral. The cityscape is washed over with a burgundy haze. Foreground: A black and white cat (black body, white neck collar, white paws) looks towards the cityscape and we see them in near silhouette. They are stood on a yellow-brick path, with green grassy hills either side of them. On the hills, grey rats with large red eyes. On the left hand side of the cat, a rat holds a stereotypical hobo sack on a stick. At the top of the artwork, gold text reads: 'Exeter Northcott Theatre and Le Navet Bete present Dick Whittington.' Another group of rats with large red eyes are playing around the letters in 'Dick Whittington'. A cat paw icon replaces the dot on top of the letter 'I' in 'Dick', and a block of cheese replaces the dot on top of the second letter 'I' in 'Whittington.
