Adapted from the beloved novel by Jules Verne, Eason's adaptation of Around the World in 80 Days features a cast of eight actors performers, performing over 125 roles.


It had its world premiere at the Lookingglass Theatre in 2008, where it was nominated for seven Jefferson Awards, including Best Adaptation and Best Production. It's since gone on to have multiple productions in the US and UK, including Kansas City Rep and Baltimore Centerstage in 2010.


In 2017, following a sold-out run at the New Vic Theatre in London directed by Theresa Heskins, there was a six-month tour across the United Kingdom, performing in seventeen cities. This production was then brought to the New Victory Theater in New York City in 2018.


This adaptation is published by BPPI and Nick Hern Books.
