9TH APRIL - 25TH JUNE 2016.
Gala Performance Monday 25th April 2016.
All Scene were thrilled to get the opportunity to collborate with The Jamie Lloyd Company again this year on DOCTOR FAUSTUS for the Duke of York's Theatre, with another brilliant design by Soutra Gilmour.
Praised for their innovative and anarchic reinvention of the classics, The Jamie Lloyd Company propels Christopher Marlowe's 1592 legendary tale DOCTOR FAUSTUS into the here and now in an explosive new production starring Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) in his long-awaited return to the London Stage.
Faustus makes a pact with the Devil, selling his soul in return for the ability to perform absolutley anything he pleases with the power of black magic. This fatal decision catapults him into an intoxicating world of celebrity, as he becomes a world-renowned conjuror, international heartthrob and friend of the rich, famous and powerful. But what is the cost of his insatiable thirst for wealth and fame?
With blackly comic new scenes by Colin Teevan, the story of this 400-year-old play is transported to a celebrity-obsessed society of greed and instant gratification, offering a fresh, new perspective that chimes with our times.
DOCTOR FAUSTUS will run at the Duke of York's Theatre in London until 25th June 2016. Previews start from 9th April 2016, with the Gala Performance on Monday 25th April 2016.
