The Faustus Project

This tragical story follows a man who makes a deal with the devil.

An actor has made a deal with the devil. Marlowe's Doctor Faustus – one of theatre’s greatest roles – all theirs to perform. One problem: they’ve never rehearsed with the rest of the cast. With a new guest performer in the leading role every night, The Faustus Project promises to be hilarious, a little dangerous and a devilishly good time.

A devised work using the original script by Shakespeare’s good mate Christopher Marlowe, this tragical story follows a man who makes a deal with the devil. For 24 years, Faustus will have unlimited power, money, glory - anything he could ever want. An eternity in hell at the end of it all a small price to pay, right? Faustus doesn't quite know what he's gotten himself into, and neither does our lead actor.

The guest actor who braves the leading role of Doctor Faustus is different every show. They've got the script, and they know the role, but they don't know anything else. The actors taking on this torture are listed next to the show nights on iTicket, so be sure to check them out.

Resident blogger, Jonty, caught up with Caleb Wells about the inspiration behind adapting the play. Read about it here.
