Fletcher Players

Doctor Faustus

Christopher Marlowe

Content warning [May contain spoilers]

Doctor Faustus is irreverent, chaotic and riotous fun. In a post-theistic age, the play ask questions of the modern conception of humanism: is immortality an achievable goal in the 21st century? What constitutes personal fulfilment, and to what lengths will one go – and should one go – to achieve it?

Faustus experiences hallucinogenic highs, balanced against moments of personal crisis and breakdown. With original compositions and jazz funk choreography, this show recollects something of the spectacular quality of the ‘Marlowe effect’ experienced by the play’s original audience.

Embrace the chaotic world of Faustus’ creation - and all its implications.
