De Christopher Marlowe

Résumé: Doctor Faustus, restless for knowledge, forsakes scholarship for magic and makes a pact with the Devil: if the evil spirit Mephistopheles will serve him for 24 years, Faustus will yield his soul to the Devil after death. It isn’t long before Faustus has doubts about the bargain, but Mephistopheles has plenty of entertainment at hand to distract Faustus from the terrifying reality of his position and the prospect of its agonising conclusion.

Commentaires : In Doctor Faustus, the greatest tragedy in English before Shakespeare, Marlowe puts some of the greatest poetry ever written for the stage and a good deal of anarchic comedy at the service of a mythic tale illustrating mankind’s insatiable desire for knowledge and power.

This was the first production of Doctor Faustus at the Globe.
Presse : "Dr Faustus isn't a great play...there is never quite enough frisson between the leads. This is a confident and lucid account of Marlowe's most famous work, but it's not electrifying." Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard

"Rude, robust, bawdy, magical and violent, it is a provocatively entertaining production." Neil Norman for The Daily Express

"This is a Faustus that often looks impressive, with its sinister choreography and grotesque designs, but when it comes to genuine chills and thrills, the audience is left seriously short-changed." Charles Spencer for The Daily Telegraph
