Doctor Faustus
Directed by Alexandra Gould

One of Western culture's most enduring myths recounts the tale of a doctor who sells his soul to the devil in exchange for knowledge and power.  Elizabethan playwright Christopher Marlowe transformed the Faust legend into the English language's first epic tragedy, a vivid drama that abounds in psychological insights and poetic grandeur.
