Doctor Faustus

Praised for their innovative and anarchic reinvention of the classics, The Jamie Lloyd Company propels Christopher Marlowe’s legendary tale Doctor Faustus into the here and now in an explosive new production starring Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) in his long-awaited return to the London stage.

Faustus makes a pact with the Devil, selling his soul in return for the ability to perform absolutely anything he pleases with the power of black magic. This fatal decision catapults him into an intoxicating world of celebrity, as he becomes a world-renowned conjuror, international heartthrob and friend of the rich, famous and powerful. But what is the cost of his insatiable thirst for wealth and fame?

With blackly comic new scenes by Colin Teevan, the story of this 400-year-old play is transported to a celebrity-obsessed society of greed and instant gratification, offering a fresh, new perspective that chimes with our times.

Further Casting includes Olivier Award-winner Jenna Russell; Grey Gardens (Southwark Playhouse), Urinetown (St James Theatre & Apollo) Mr Burns (Almeida) as Mephistopheles, Jade Anouka; Henry IV (Donmar and St Anns Warehouse NYC) and winner of The Stage Award for Acting Excellence as Wagner and Forbes Masson; The Ruling Class, Richard III and Macbeth (part of The Jamie Lloyd Company) as Lucifer.

Full company casting:
Tom Edden, Brian Gilligan, Danielle Flett, Craig Stein, Gabby Wong, Garmon Rhys

Faustus: Remixed, written and performed by Charlie Dupré
MONDAY 13th JUNE – POST SHOW (20 minutes)
DUKE OF YORK’S THEATRE

Faustus: Remixed is a visceral, high-octane spoken word retelling of Marlowe's famous tale, and explores the notion of soul for a contemporary audience. Building on the original's cornerstones of vanity and thirst for understanding, the piece challenges the audience to examine Marlowe's themes through a modern lens. It questions whether individualism and grandeur are the keys to fulfilment, or rather the gatekeepers of a hell we are desperate to avoid.

 

Performed exclusively in partnership with The Jamie Lloyd Company on the set of Doctor Faustus at the Duke of York’s, this is Marlowe like you’ve never seen him before. 

 

Charlie Dupré has recently re-written Faustus: Remixed as a short film with the support of Arts Council England and the National Lottery Fund.
