A new arrangement of Marlowe's classic text with original, live music; an intimate portrayal of a man's descent into damnation and despair.
Staged in the round, with minimal props and lighting, there is nowhere for Faust to run from the demons (and angels) that pursue him. As the audience and the darkness beyond press ever closer, Faust's desperation reaches its breaking point. Will there be any winners in the war for his soul?
