05/10/1995 – 21/10/1995
Director’s Note: This show is designed to give you the chance to put us to the test. We entreat you to wander, act and react. Pray in the chapel, taste the bakery’s produce, rub gauntlets with Robert Poley, challenge Shakespeare to a soliloquay showdown, confess your sins to Archbishop Whitgift or uncover the mystery of Marlowe himself.
Marlowe is dead. Kyd is in the torture house. Greene dances for ducats and Shakespeare is very, very happy. Join the scheming audience on the first night of Marlowe’s “Dr Faustus”. A cataclysmic new style of theatre played out on two floors of Elizabethan architecture. Audience should wear dark clothing. Drinks provided.
Produced by Y Theatre at the former CUB Brewhouse
