CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
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... Christopher Marlowe's poetic masterpiece is staged by the combined forces of the Festival ensemble, the Youth Theatre and local community members. As Faustus criss-crosses the known world, the audience will move from the Minerva through the streets of Chichester to a hellish climax in the Cathedral itself. There will be angels, demons, dragons and banquets as Faustus goes where even angels fear to tread. What would you give to gain your heart's desire?Performers Samuel West, Steven Beard, Matt Costain, Michael Feast, Kieran Hill.
