What to do? Along comes Pegleg (Rotimi Agbabiaka) with an offer he cannot refuse. With music by Tom Waits this adaptation by William S. Burroughs will be a wild ride through a dark and magical forest.

Around the World in 80 Days

Stampeding elephants! Raging typhoons! Runaway trains! Join fearless adventurer Phileas Fogg and his faithful valet in the original "Great Race," circling the globe in an 1870s alive with danger, romance, and comic surprises at every turn. In the hilariously theatrical style of The 39 Steps, five actors portray dozens of characters in a thrilling race against time and treachery. Grab your family, and your passport, for an ingenious, imaginative expedition around the world!

Michael Gene Sullivan will be playing Detective Fix (and a host of other people) chasing the rather annoying Phineas Fogg around the world!

Winston Smith is a cog in the giant machine of the State. Physically and mentally under the omnipresent eye of Big Brother, Winston has been caught struggling for scraps of love and freedom in a world awash with distrust and violence. With the brutal "help" of four Party Members, Winston is forced to confess his "Thought-Crimes" before an unseen inquisitor, and the audience -- which acts as a silent witness to his torture. This is a ferocious and provocative adaptation of one of the most prescient works of literature of the last century.
