'Dr. Faustus'
by Christopher Marlowe




6th - 10th November 2018


Niki Caister

"A heavenly production…a devilishly good time"
Review from Kev Castle Theatre Reviews

From the pen of Shakespeare’s contemporary Christopher Marlowe came this legendary tale of genius, madness and damnation. Niki Caister brought the story to vivid life in November 2018 with an energetic production that featured gymnastics, masks, pyrotechnics and devilishly good performances across the board from a supremely talented ensemble.

The show built in tension and intensity as the audience were taken on Faustus’s descent into hell, hanging on the edge of their seats from start to finish!
