DOCTOR FAUSTUS, OR THE MODERN PROMETHEUS
SATE presents DOCTOR FAUSTUS, OR THE MODERN PROMETHEUS:
By John Wolbersand Kit Marlowe
Directed by Ellie Schwetye
November 7-November 17, 2018 at The Chapel, 6238 Alexander Drive

Doctor Faustus, or the Modern Prometheus is a modern day retelling of the age-old bargain for limitless control over ones own fate. The brilliant Doctor Faustus grows weary of those in charge abusing their power; so, with the noblest of intentions, sells her soul to save the world. Thus begins an epic journey of seduction and love, justice and mercy, despair and hope, and ultimately damnation and redemption. Along the way Faustus must choose between good, evil and the compromise known as humanity. Playwright, John Wolbers, retains much of Christopher Marlowes original poetry, but reframes the story to examine: How does one effect change in an increasingly complex world? What is the value of a soul in todays modern age? And what holds us back from transcending our baser instincts to become our best selves?

The performing ensemble includes Ashley Bauman, Erik Kuhn, Kareem Deanes, Joe Hanrahan, Lex Ronan, Michael Pierce, Nicole Angeli, and Taleesha Caturah.

Doctor Faustus, or the Modern Prometheus is directed by Ellie Schwetye. The production stage manager is Kristen Strom with dramaturgy by Courtney Bailey Parker, set design by Bess Moynihan, and lighting design by Dominick Ehling. Sound design by Kareem Deanes and costume design by Liz Henning. Graphic design by Dottie Quick and photography by Joey Rumpell.
