ABOUT ABOUT

Tickets are still available for Saturday April 25, 2015 at 8 pm and Sunday April 26, 2015 at 2:00 pm.

In this visual-gestural adaptation (no signed or spoken dialogue) of Christopher Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus, a brilliant doctor and scientist learns necromancy in order to reach beyond the limits of his own knowledge; by that magical art, he strikes a deal with the devil: his soul in exchange for 24 years of power.  As the clock ticks away the years, Faustus and his demon servant, Mephistopheles, navigate through a Steampunk world where technology and magic intertwine, and its people struggle to not lose sight of their humanity.  Can Doctor Faustus redeem himself before the clock strikes its final hour, delivering him to his doom?
