A brand new adaptation of
Marlowe’s Dr Faustus
Driven by an insatiable thirst for knowledge and unlimited power, Dr Faustus makes a pact with the devil and in turn relinquishes his soul.
Scene Productions takes this classic story of damnation and presents it as a deliciously dark and terrifically twisted fairytale. Using stunning puppetry, live illusion and trickery; avenging angels and dastardly demons are brought to life as three performers conjure a fantastical world of magic, mischief and the macabre. We all want what we can’t have.
What would YOU sell your soul for?A cautionary tale suitable for ages 6 to 666 !

**** Three Weeks, The Scotsman, Fringe Review & The List on The Other Side
Cast of three (technician optional)
Running time: Approx 1hr
plus optional 20 minute Q&A
Teachers Pack included
There are two versions of the show available. One version runs without a technician where the venue will need to provide a standard lighting wash which will remain on and unchanged throughout. The second version involves Scene Productions bringing a technician who will operate lighting changes throughout the show. This allows us to tour to a variety of venues, keeping the show as flexible as possible and giving venues the option to choose what is most suitable for their space, facilities and budget.
In addition to schools touring we will also be performing Dr Faustus at a couple of theatres. Please see booking information below. The list will be updated as new venues are added.
