Description

Christopher Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus is regarded by many as ‘a great play marred’ by dated satire and suspect third and fourth acts. A play with a long history of ‘additions’, Colin Teevan’s contemporary scenes link the thrilling danger of Marlowe’s opening acts with the profound terror and tragedy of his finale in a radical and darkly comic new take on a classic of the English stage.

This revival is presented by The Jamie Lloyd Company at the Duke of York’s Theatre, London from April 2016.
