What is currently on at Hampstead Theatre (V202)


This journey through temptation, magic, sin and despair, questions the true nature of power and the ultimate purpose and value of being human. Raw comedy and tragedy combine to reveal the story of a flawed and isolated man.
Author Christopher Marlowe
