Around the World in 80 DaysOne policeman, two comrades, three cab rides, four continents, five trains, six ships and just 80 days to get back home!

This year’s family Christmas production at The Stables in Milton Keynes is a high-octane adaptation of Jules Verne’s famous novel Around the World in 80 Days.

Join Phileas Fogg and his faithful servant Passepartout in their audacious plan to navigate the globe in just 80 days. With only a bag full of money, a pocket watch and a wager to win, Fogg sets out on the most celebrated literary journey of all time.

Combining clowning, live music, storytelling and an international ensemble, Around the World in 80 Days takes audiences on a high-speed, madcap, transcontinental race against the clock. The show is produced and performed by the renowned theatre company New International Encounter.

The show is suitable for everyone over 6 years old and lasts approximately 1 hour 45 minutes (including interval).

Performances run from Tuesday 22 December through to Saturday 2 January and tickets, priced £11-£20, are now on sale from The Stables box office, tel: 01908 280800 and via The Stables website at  During the run The Stables is offering a specially themed Around the World in 80 Bites in its popular Café in2 restaurant.

On Monday 28 December at 1.30pm there will be a ‘relaxed’ performance of the show. It is specifically designed to welcome people who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including people with an autism spectrum condition, sensory and communication disorders or a learning disability.
