Can we have it all? Dr John Faustus thought so, and the terrible price he pays for gorging his appetites is explored in this timeless morality play.

Faustus makes the original pact with the devil. He sells his soul for eternity in return for 24 years of his every desire being satisfied. He has great knowledge but cannot satisfy his thirst for more and once given access, the devil seduces him by degree with baser and baser temptations.

The production explores how temptation can unravel us all,

through live music and a cast of characters who transmute from real to grotesque.
