Doctor Faustus
A man sells his soul to the devil - a tale that's been around so long that even in his day Cotton Mather would call it creaky (and then he'd still denounce it - loudly - as blasphemous). In the right hands though, that plot has the power to shake modern audiences to their core. You couldn't ask for better hands than Christopher Marlowe's, and "Doctor Faustus" is his masterpiece. Faustus is a scholar who has pursued all the fields of knowledge to their ends and casts about for ultimate knowledge. His deal with Lucifer highlights clashes between the medieval age and the coming renaissance as well as the battle (ongoing) between Christian and secular worlds.

Interestingly, two versions of the play exist, one published in 1604 and the other in 1616 (both years after Marlowe's death), but you'll have to come see our production to discover which version we're using... Either way, it's Mephistophilis, the 7 Deadly Sins and the Supernatural. Great theatre!

Opens Friday, October 24th. Performances Fridays and Saturdays October 24th through November 22nd at 8 pm, plus an extra showing Thursday, November 20th at 8 pm.
