By Christopher Marlowe
Matinee 6 April at 2.30pm
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.
