PLEASE NOTE: We have now taken the 2010 version of our DR FAUSTUS DVD, script and teacher pack off sale, to avoid confusion with our 2019/2020 touring version of the play. The updated DVD, script and teacher pack supporting the new version of the show will be available from early February 2020.
“Very well shot, in that they still feel like a theatre performance… Ideal at A-level where a single watch of the live production can be supplemented by several revisits and discussions of key moments. Also invaluable from the point of view of demonstrating, quickly and effectively, how an interpretation can be placed onto a play, for students who struggle with the idea that there isn’t just a single way to perform a script.”
Andrew Shakeshaft, Head of Drama, Monmouth School (The Blake Theatre)

“The performance in particular supports the written exam for the new GCSE and the new A Level where they need to write about Live Theatre. This provides easy access to inventive work without expensive travel to the theatre. The DVD and pack produced is also an excellent teaching support. The style is accessible and entertaining for students (and staff)."
Sally Foley, Head of Faculty, Chelmsford County High school for Girls
"Your DVD of Faustus is the only DVD I have shown to have received applause from a class. They love the way you interpret a play and perform with such energy."
Kevin Jones, Emrys ap Iwan School, Abergele
"Thank you Splendid for another amazing resource! The DVDs are
essential for anyone teaching A-Level Drama & Theatre studies, as both Dr Faustus and Woyzeck are texts for Unit 4!!
All of our students saw the original productions and it's so great to be able to refer back to them in class as well as using them to give
examples of performance skills and the different ways of interpreting a script. Thank you Thank you Thank you!"
Leo Cox, Sudbury Upper School & Arts College
