    SAN FRANCISCO, Oct 10, 2002 (ASCRIBE NEWS via COMTEX) -- Fratelli Bologna with the cast of 'The Life Game' will host a benefit performance Nov. 13th to honor four adventurers who are traveling around the world using 80 different means of transportation.

    Performed at SomArts Cultural Center on Nov. 13, "Around the World in 80 Ways - A Special Life Game" will spotlight the adventurers and their journey around the globe which started in London in September. This special performance in San Francisco will benefit the Bay Area Association of Disabled Sailors ( www.baads.org) and the Around the World Foundation.

    The "Around the World in 80 Ways" team includes Caroline Casey and Miles Hilton Barber who are blind, Mike Mackenzie who uses a wheelchair because of a spinal cord injury, and their leader, Robin Dunseath, the modern day Phileas Fogg who challenged them to circumnavigate the globe using 80 different modes of transportation, similar to the 80 days dare of the great Jules Verne classic. The adventurers want to encourage people to live their lives to their fullest potential and to raise funds for charities along the route. They will return to London on Dec. 3 in time for the United Nation's International Day for people with disabilities. For more information visit

    In "The Life Game," the adventurers' stories will be interpreted by a talented ensemble of actors to create an evening of powerful, compelling theater.
