Our modern-day Faustus sells his soul to the devil in exchange for - what?  

This exciting new production follows the tragic hero, played by local musician Ian Bishop, on his rise from lowly busker to celebrity chart topper. The play also featured blues tracks and original music performed by members of the cast.  The temptation of fame and wealth is Faustus' flaw and leads to his drug-induced downfall.
