Faustus 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...Performers Sandy Grierson (Faustus - some dates), Oliver Ryan (Faustus - some dates), Sandy Grierson (Mephistopheles - some dates), Oliver Ryan (Mephistopheles - some dates), Will Bliss (Valdes/Good Angel), Jade Croot (Helen of Troy), John Cummins (Cornelius/Evil Angel), Ruth Everett (Scholar/Friar/Deadly Sin), Gabriel Fleary (Emperor/Gluttony/Scholar), Theo Fraser Steele (Duke/Friar/Deadly Sin), Gemma Goggin (Cardinal of Lorraine), Natey Jones (Frederick/Scholar), Richard Leeming (Envy/Scholar), Nicholas Lumley (Wagner/Old Man), Tom McCall (Benvolio/Friar), Joshua McCord (Martino), Bathsheba Piepe (Sloth/Scholar/Friar), Rosa Robson (Scholar), Amy Rockson (Duchess/Scholar), Timothy Speyer (Pope), Eleanor Wyld (Lucifer/Scholar)..
