Dr Faustus

Greatness. Is there any price too high? Exquisite Puppetry, Physical Theatre and Circus Artistry throw petrol over the flames of Marlowe's hellish pride tale and the battle for one circus leader's soul. In a world pulsing with vanity and expectation, what happens when the greatest loved icon runs out of clever ideas? Under the straining tent poles of the world's most famous circus, Dr. Faustus employs the one show tactic not yet undertaken to achieve glory - black magic. Devilish neon puppets wander the stage in this visceral and physical re-imagining, whilst the fast-paced backbone of modern dialogue rockets the classic B text into full techni-colour for today's audience. In this new exploration of Marlowe's classically Christian tale, Sin is for all creeds and Hell is wherever you allow it.
