“Had I as many souls as there be stars, I’d give them all for Mephistophilis”
The legendary tale of Faustus whose unquenchable desire for fame leads him to make a pact with the devil in return for extraordinary power and knowledge. Too late Faustus realises the true magnitude of the hellish price he must pay; the eternal damnation of his soul. In this Elizabethan tragedy, Marlowe uses some of the finest poetry ever written for the stage in illustrating mankind’s insatiable desire for greatness.
A formidable and cathartic piece of theatre that will have you both jumping in fear and giggling with its dark humour.
