Director's Note

One of the most durable myths in Western culture, the story of Faustus tells of a learned man who sells his soul to the Devil in exchange for knowledge and power. The young and controversial Elizabethan playwright Christopher Marlowe (1564-1593) realized in his adaptation of the Faustian legend perhaps the first great English tragedy. This abridged and adapted version stays true to Marlowe's concepts and language, while updating the play for a modern audience's understanding and sensibilities.

This experimental production might occasionally need some audience participation; please, do not be afraid to help us out. The performance will be evolving and changing throughout its four performances, so if you choose to see it twice you will see new takes on the material. We'd love to get feedback from you; feel free to stick around after the performance and chat with us.

Laugh, enjoy, and ask yourself "should Faustus repent."

Thanks for your support,

Jochen Rick, script-editor and co-director
