About the event

Meet Faustus; a brilliant, bored, academic, a scholar who believes he has exhausted the confines of human knowledge.

Frustrated with the futility of law and science he is hungry for something new and falls under the spell of the dark arts. In Marlowe’s most famous play, we consider the battle between good and evil, the merits of hell over heaven and ask whether faith alone is enough to save a soul. In this modern interpretation, with a stripped down text, Derby Shakespeare Theatre Company invite you to come face to face with the Devil and steal a glimpse into the jaws of Hell.

You, me and Faustus

On Tuesday 6th November starting at 7.30pm, meet the production team, hear the story from page to stage and ask questions about the creative process. This will be particularly useful for school groups but everyone is welcome. Performance starts at 8pm.
