Doctor Faustus
by Christopher Marlowe
directed by Claudia Bach

After making a deal with a servant of Hell to unlock the truth and powers of the world, Faustus gets more than he bargained for when his payment comes due. On a backdrop of reddit and internet indoctrination, this production explores what it means to access the truth and to confront reality, whatever it may be.
