Performed and produced by undergraduate students in Drama, join us for Faustus: That Damned Woman, a reimagining of the classic tale, exploring themes of power, ambition and agency through a modern lens.

by Chris Bush

Directed by Jo Gleave

In this radical reimagining of the classic cautionary tale, Johanna Faustus makes the ultimate sacrifice and sells her soul 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 play Faustus: That Damned Woman is inspired by the works of 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 amateur production of Faustus: That Damned Woman is presented by arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
