How far would you go to achieve ultimate power?
Re-worked and adapted for the contemporary stage, this bold production of Faustus, re-tells the legend in an all- encompassing one man show. Based on real events in Germany, Christopher Marlowe tells the story of the academic, Doctor Faustus, who enters into a pact with Lucifer. The ultimate bargain will grant him twenty-four years of all he desires in return for his soul, which will be given to the devil. As the countdown to his damnation begins, this production questions repentance and the struggle of the human mind.
This dynamic one-man show is a brand new adaptation of Marlowe’s classic text. Directed by Patsy Hughes, this production promises to be a compelling and energetic event.
"Conscientious reworking...brave, energetic young actor who emerges word perfect at the end of almost an hour of intense performance. No mean feat." (Irish Theatre Magazine)
