9780881453874: Around the World in Eighty Days (A Play)

Phileas Fogg, the perfect Victorian gentleman, has determined, with mathematical precision, that the world can be circumnavigated in eighty days. On this belief, he has wagered his entire fortune and, more importantly, his word. Will an act of chivalry, a herd of buffalo, an unreliable but ever faithful valet, and an unrelenting inspector from Scotland Yard keep him from his impossible task? Follow Fogg aboard steamships, locomotives, and pachyderms as he learns about a world that he never anticipated in this thrilling and touching new adaptation of Jules Verne's classic adventure story.

About the Author:

Jules Verne was a French writer and pioneer of the science fiction genre through novels like Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Around the World in Eighty Days, A Journey to the Center of the Earth, and The Mysterious Island. A visionary, Verne wrote about air, space, and underwater travel long before the ability to travel in these realms was invented, and his works remain amongst the most translated, most continually reprinted, and most widely read books of all time. Jules Verne died in 1905 having paved the way for future science fiction writers and enthusiasts.
