A woman's hands clasped in prayer, engulfed in flames

In this radical reimagining of the classic cautionary tale, Joanna Faustus makes the ultimate sacrifice and sells her soul to the devil, to wrestle control of her own destiny.

She travels through time and changes the course of human history, but can she escape eternal damnation?

Chris Bush’s devilishly provocative new play is inspired by Marlowe, Goethe and other versions of the Faust myth and explores what women must sacrifice to achieve greatness and the legacies that are left behind.

This production contains adult themes, admission to over 13s only.

Please note, due to company allergies, the theatre is a peanut free zone during this production.
