Doctor Faustus archiveFaustus is a brilliant academic whose destructive thirst for knowledge leads him down a path to damnation when he sells his soul to Lucifer. From the splendour of Emperor Charles V's court to the excesses of the Pope's banquet in Rome, Faustus experiences all the earthly delights on offer in this world and beyond with the magical powers granted by his devilish companion, Mephistopheles. But his time is fast running out... The King's Players presents a new production of Christopher Marlowe's classic tale of greed, lust and damnation. This new version, set in the mid-1980s corporate world of high finance, blind ambition and demonic corruption sees John Faustus, a greedy, arrogant young high-flyer sign a contract with Lucifer in exchange for twenty-four years of supernatural power. The price? His soul. With a female seductress Mephistopheles, a 22-strong cast of sharp-suited business men and masked devils, and a killer soundtrack, this exciting new production puts a contemporary spin on a classic play.
