Based on an original idea by Nobby Dimon and Simon Corbie from the book by John Buchan. This brand new version will be performed by four actors playing a minimum of 150 roles and contains every single legendary scene from the award-winning movie including the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the first theatrical bi-plane crash ever staged and the sensational death-defying finale in the London Palladium, besides many other favourite cinematic moments, including the memorable and controversial 'stockings and suspenders' scene!
When Phileas Fogg and his faithful servant Passepartout board the train in London in 1875, he has only 80 days to travel round the world to win the wager between him and his friends at the great Reform Club. A grand adventure lies ahead, using conventional and more often unconventional travel arrangements; his journey will, of course, include romance, danger and surprises with the redoubtable Scotland Yard pursuing him at every turn.
Originally written for TV, Dennis Potter's deceptively simple tale relates to the activities of seven West-Country seven-year-olds on a summer afternoon during the Second World War, in a wood, a field and a barn. The children (all played by adult actors) play, fight fantasise and swagger, their aggressions, fears, hostilities and rivalries a microcosm of adult interaction. Easy-going Willie tags along as burly Peter bullies gentle Raymond and is challenged by fair minded John. Plain Audrey is overshadowed by Angela's prettiness and wreaks her angry frustrations on the boys. All of them gang up on the terrified 'Donald Duck' who, abused by his mother and ridiculed by his peers, plays his own dangerous game of pyromania which ends in tragedy.
"Things are definitely looking up - brighter light - more frequent boating - more confident smile - things are improving day by day - who ever would've guessed?" Fewer Emergencies involves four voices, three stories, two songs and a rodent called Bobby.

Jake and Charlie are two 'extras' on a movie blockbuster being filmed in Co Kerry. Is it just a bit of 'craic', a sniff of glamour, forty quid in your hand and then back to porridge, or will the effects be longer lasting?
