Description

‘He that loves pleasure must for pleasure fall’. The clock tolls midnight and devils come to collect Faustus’ soul. When John Faustus grows weary of his dreary scholarly life, he falls upon the art of necromancy. With the aid of the demon Mephistopheles, he embarks upon a life of excess. However, as the end of his life draws near, he begins to doubt whether selling his soul to Lucifer was all it was cracked up to be... A funny and fast-paced abridgement of Christopher Marlowe’s most famous show.
