The Movement presents:
In a grimy Whitechapel garret at the turn of the century, John Faustus -- scholar, anatomist, lunatic -- signs away his soul.
With a Cambridge run in the 11th Century St. Peter's Church @ Kettle's Yard, we will be telling his story as part of an exhibition showcasing the work of former Christ’s College Cambridge artist-in-residence Tom de Freston. Tom’s self-conscious, post-religious painting will confront Kit Marlowe’s words in a nauseously comic production exploring the boundaries between art and theatre, faith and madness, knowledge and despair.
Dr. Faustus is the latest professional production from a group who have been individually praised by The Scotsman, The Stage and Artspace, and have worked with nationally-touring theatre companies.
