Faustus: That Damned Woman (London, Lyric Theatre Hammersmith, 2020) | Playbill

Faustus: That Damned Woman


SYNOPSIS: Faustus: That Damned Woman sees the grandiose protagonist rewritten as a woman trading sacrifices to travel across centuries and alter the fabric of history. The legend of Doctor Faustus follows the twists and turns in the demise of a scholar who – growing bored of traditional studies – sells their soul to the devil in exchange for the powers of black magic. Drawing together the famous interpretations of the Faustus myth by Marlowe and Goethe as well as a wide range of other re-imaginings, the play asks grand questions about sacrifice and legacy.
