Faustus is a solitary scholar who has exhausted the confines of human knowledge. Frustrated with the futility of religion, law and science, he is desperate for a deeper understanding of the universe – and the fame it will bring. Risking everything, he conjures Mephistophilis and asks him to strike a deal with Lucifer. Twenty-four years of absolute knowledge in exchange for his soul.
Transferring to London following its successful run in Stratford-upon-Avon, Aberg’s punchy production updates Marlowe for our times with ritual, cabaret and carnival.
