The world quakes in fear...

A sea-monster is sinking warships in the mid-Atlantic. Their vessel capsized, Professor Aronnax (the most famous oceanographer in Europe) and Ned Land (King of Harpooners) find themselves adrift and lost on a storm-swept ocean. Rescued by the mysterious Captain Nemo and held captive aboard his fantastic ship the Nautilus, their perilous voyage begins...

Jules Verne’s prophetic novel of sub-sea adventure foreshadows our own atomic-age as the unrivalled technology of the Nautilus is put to ever-more destructive use by the dark genius of Captain Nemo. His quest? ‘To rid the world of all mankind.’ Caught in a race against time, Aronnax and Land must destroy the Nautilus before Nemo’s appalling vision comes true...

Following a sell-out production of The Invisible Man in 2017 Thunder Road once again brings daring and delight to another timeless cult classic, a cautionary tale of science, exploration, madness, and courage. This voyage is not to be missed ...
