Award-winning playwright Chris Bush reimagines the Faust myth to explore what we must sacrifice to achieve greatness, and the legacy that we leave behind.
Faustus: That Damned Woman is a radical new work in which the iconic character of Faustus becomes a woman who makes the ultimate sacrifice in order to traverse centuries and change the course of history.
It is premiered at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre in January 2020, in a co-production with Headlong and Birmingham Repertory Theatre, prior to a UK tour.
Extra Content: 'I wanted to create an epic, ambitious, gothic, baroque fever dream of a piece that took a well-known classic and inverted it to say something truthful about the contemporary female experience.' Chris Bush on her play Faustus: That Damned Woman, in The Guardian, 11 December 2019.
