Theatre: Dr. Faustus, Transy’s Carrick Theatre
January 22, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 8:00 pm
“As part of their Method in Madness Tour, the American Shakespeare Center presents “The Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus,” a play written by Christopher Marlowe. Faustus sells his soul, not for riches, but for knowledge and power. Marlowe weaves a shocking and contemporary tale of the struggle between good and evil, championing what is most daring in the human spirit. In his masterpiece that predates almost all of Shakespeare’s plays, Marlowe breathtakingly conjures Helen of Troy, the Seven Deadly Sins, angels, demons, and Satan himself, before dragging Faustus to Hell.”
