Faustus: That Damned Woman : Northern Stage

Description

From award-winning playwright and theatre maker Chris Bush (Standing at the Sky's Edge), Caroline Byrne (Spring Awakening, Young Vic) directs this radical new work reimagining the Faust myth to explore what we must sacrifice to achieve greatness, and the legacy that we leave behind.

Drawing on the works of Marlowe, Goethe, and other versions of the Faustus myth, Chris’s urgent reimagining asks what we must sacrifice to achieve greatness and the legacy that we leave behind.

“My name is Johanna Faustus. I was born almost four hundred years ago.
I gave my soul to achieve the impossible.
I watched this city grow sick and I swore to heal it.
I might be damned, but I would save the world to spite the Devil.”

Faustus: That Damned Woman is the first work to be commissioned as part of Headlong and the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre’s long-term commitment to commissioning and producing work of scale by women playwrights.
