Written by: Christopher Marlowe; Cast: (the cast may change on different dates) Pauline McLynn, Paulette Randall, Libby Watson

Doctor Faustus is thirsting for knowledge, and covets fame and power... so he conjures up the menacing demon, Mephistopheles, who offers him a deal: the demon will give him supreme power on earth for 24 years, but in return he must sacrifice his immortal soul to a fiery hell.

Once the deal is signed in blood Faustus travels the world performing wonders with his new-found powers, elevating him to an unrivalled notoriety. But as his final hour of reckoning approaches, the true cost of his bargain becomes an all too certain reality.
