Harleston Players will be embarking on a race against time this month as they present an adaptation of Jules Verne's Around the World in 80 Days.

The classic race against time tells the story of a Phileas Fogg, a cool-headed Englishman who sets off on a bet to travel around the world just 80 days, with his hot-blooded man servant Passepartout.

Along the way the pair encounter natural disasters, kidnappings and attacks - all whilst being pursued by Inspector Fix of Scotland Yard, who believes Fogg has stolen from the Bank of England in order to win his wager.

Production director David Cummings said: 'This is an exciting show, crossing continents, travelling by train, steamship, sailing boat, sledge and even elephant.'

Performances are on January 26 and 27 and February 2 and 3 at Archbishop Sancroft High School (ASHS), Harleston.
