Long before Verne stories had formed the basis for such movies as Around the World in 80 Days, many of his plays were theatrical blockbusters on the 19th century stage. This volume by Frank Morlock, leading translator of Verne plays, explores some of Verne’s youthful stage writing. Four plays range from romantic comedies to a scientist’s discovery that there may not be such a difference between human and ape after all!
Praise for the North American Jules Verne Society’s publication of the Verne play, Journey Through the Impossible:
“A work for Verne aficionados, theater buffs, or just those who enjoy a good story…. See another side of the ‘Father of Science Fiction.’” – Washington Science Fiction Association
“Although he quickly became famous for the scientific novels … theater was Verne’s true passion…. A substantial contribution to Verne scholarship…. Highly recommended.” - Science-Fiction Studies
