Theatrical Niche present Dr Faustus. A modern, physical re-telling of Marlowe.

Greatness. Is there any price too high?

Exquisite puppetry, physical theatre and circus artistry throw petrol over the flames of this modern re-telling of Marlowe’s hellish tale of pride.

Devilish neon puppets wander the stage in this visceral and physical re-imagining, as under the straining tent poles of the world’s most famous circus, Dr. Faustus employs the one show tactic not yet undertaken to achieve glory: black magic.
