“Had I as many souls as there be stars, I’d give them all for Mephistophilis”

The legendary tale of the ambitious Faustus, whose unquenchable desire for fame leads him to make a pact with the devil in return for twenty-four years of power and knowledge. Too late Faustus realises the true magnitude of the hellish price he is fated to pay; the eternal damnation of his soul. Arguably the greatest tragedy written before Shakespeare, Marlowe uses some of the finest poetry ever written for the stage in illustrating mankinds insatiable desire for greatness.

A formidable, raw and cathartic piece of theatre that will have you both jumping in your seat with fear and giggling with its dark humour.
