Rarely performed in Perth, Marlowe’s stunning and compelling play Doctor Faustus will be performed at UWA’s New Fortune Theatre, an astonishing outdoor facsimile of an Elizabethan playing space, a setting for which the play was written.
Thoughtful, daring, darkly funny and yet also intensely truthful, it is a masterpiece, comparable with many of Shakespeare’s plays, written at the height of Marlowe’s powers. The extraordinary thing about the play is the outrageous humour.
Director: Stephen Lee
