Around the World in 80 Plays!


Jules Verne’s classic novel Around the World in Eighty Days was published more than 150 years ago, in 1873. We’ve assembled our own twist on Verne’s literary journey with this collection of Concord Theatricals plays that take place in locations all over the globe. Broaden your horizons with this vast array of comedies, dramas, tragedies and mysteries!

In Verne’s story, Phileas Fogg and his companion Passepartout leave London and head east, along this route:

Our list follows a similar path around the planet, though we cover more ground, with plays listed alphabetically under these headings:

  • The United Kingdom and Eire
  • Western Europe
  • Central & Eastern Europe
  • Africa
  • The Middle East
  • Asia
  • Oceania
  • North America (subdivided into Canada, The United States & Mexico)
  • South and Central America

With stories ranging from heartbreaking drama to rib-tickling comedy – and locales ranging from a skyscraper in Dubai to a fishing village in Brazil – this list has something for everyone. So read on and take a theatrical journey Around the World in 80 Plays (and one musical)!
