Having conquered law, theology, philosophy and physics Dr Faustus' insatiable appetite for knowledge and power leads him to employ demonology to conjure Mephistopheles out of hell. He bargains away his soul to Lucifer in exchange for twenty four years of earthly power during which Mephistopheles will be his slave. Faustus signs the pact in his own blood and Mephistopheles reveals the infernal works of the devil. 


Reimagined by Blood, Love and Rhetoric, for their Halloween production, Dr Faustus explores the spiritual wasteland at the heart of a fevered human ego and the hedonistic materialism that emerges from it. Set in the late Victorian era of colliding cultures and dangerous decadence, we will explore the fate of a man who, under the malevolent influence of diabolical spirits, can no longer separate reality from illusion or truth from madness.
