Description
Faustus's restless quest for knowledge and his insatiable desire for notoriety drive him to make a pact with the devil in return for the power to perform the black arts. The life-changing decision propels him into a heady, celebrity-obsessed world, as magician and illusionist to the rich and famous. Quenching sexual desires as his power grows, he must question whether the price was worth paying. This new adaptation combines Marlowe's original acts with a re-imagining by Colin Teevan. Firmly placing this classic story within a present context, the universal truths held in the 400-year-old cautionary tale resonate powerfully with the greed of today's consumer-led society.

display_description Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustus is regarded by many as "a great play marred" by dated satire and suspect third and fourth acts. A play with a long history of "additions," Colin Teevan's contemporary scenes link the thrilling danger of Marlowe's opening acts with the profound terror and tragedy of his finale in a radical and darkly comic new take on a classic of the English stage. This revival is presented by The Jamie Lloyd Company at the Duke of York's Theatre, London from April 2016.
