“Wickedly inventive” 

Stage Review


“Barnstorming and brilliant”

Fairy Powered Productions


“A whirl of colour, blood, sex, and action”

Plays to See


“Spine-tingling sense of something unnatural, something sinister”

Salterton Arts Review

“A sexy, close-up production of Marlowe’s classic, that will leave you breathless”

The Prickle 

“It is raucous, random, sometimes ridiculous, sometimes even revelatory and thus a bold and intoxicating mixture”

There Ought to be Clowns

“This Doctor Faustus is a lean, taut production”

Breaking the Fourth Wall

“This new updated production is excellent and confirms that shows from Lazarus Theatre are must-sees…The final scene left me, as well as Faustus, gasping”
