Doctor Faustus | Duke of York’s Theatre

Doctor Faustus


Doctor Faustus.

A Jamie Lloyd Company production.

Current Booking period | 9th April – 25th June 2016.



This anarchic production of Doctor Faustus will run at the Duke of York’s Theatre, London, from 9th April 2016. Directed by Jamie Lloyd, Christopher Marlowe’s masterwork, with two acts written by Colin Teevan, is now booking until Saturday 25th June.

With Teevan’s darkly comic scenes replacing the extant middle acts (widely believed not to have been written by Marlowe), the story of this 400-year-old play will be transported to a celebrity-obsessed society of greed and instant gratification, offering a fresh perspective that chimes with our times.

Faustus makes a pact with the Devil, selling his soul in return for the ability to perform 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?

Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) will plays the title role in Colin Teevan’s version of Christopher Marlowe’s masterpiece with Jenna Russell playing the role of Mephistopheles.
