Christopher Marlowe


John Faustus in search of complete fulfilment sells his soul to the Devil in return for 24 years of unlimited knowledge, power and fame, as the clock strikes 12 on his final day, Mephastophilis enters, repayment is due.

Christopher Marlowe’s extraordinary, theatrical and fantastical Doctor Faustus comes to the stage in this all-new ensemble production.

The production contains smoke, haze, smoking, strobe lighting, blood, scenes of a violent and sexual nature.


“The whole work is a shocking, beautifully visual feast... Dark, brooding work of art”
