"My name is Johanna Faustus. I was born almost four hundred years ago.
I gave my soul to achieve the impossible.
I watched this city grow sick and I swore to heal it.
I might be damned, but I would save the world to spite the Devil.”

In this radical retelling of the Faustus myth, one woman makes the ultimate sacrifice - selling her soul in order to change the course of history. But can she now escape eternal damnation?

Brought to the stage by the inimitable Headlong (Richard IIIPeople, Places & Things), this gripping Faustian drama explores what we must sacrifice to achieve greatness, and the legacy that we leave behind.

Time: 10/02 -21/03/2020
