We all want what we cant have. But what price would we pay to get it?

Our theatrical Illusion Designers James Freedman and Ben Hart, have been working with Director Dominic Hill to create the illusion elements for Dr Faustus, a modernised version of Marlowe’s disturbing tale of mankinds greed for power and fame, with two acts re-written by Colin Teevan.

The tragic Life and Death of Dr Faustus by Christopher Marlowe, more commonly known as just Dr Faustus, is a story which may resonate in todays society of craving celebrity status, more than it did when it was first performed in 1592. The central character, Faustus, has an unquenchable thirst for notoriety and will stop at nothing to obtain his desire of performing the black arts, even making a pact with the Devil!

We can’t tell you exactly what illusions we’re working on, but here’s a sneak peak of Kevin Trainor (Dr, Faustus) in rehearsals.

The play will run at the West Yorkshire Playhouse from 23 February to 16 March before transferring to the Citizens Theatre Glasgow from 5 April to 27 April.
