Splendid Productions’ Dr Faustus (1yr streaming video rental)
Splendid Productions present a new creative adaptation of the all-time classic play by Christopher Marlowe. The brilliant scholar Dr Faustus uses his fabulous intellect to summon the actual devil to grant his every wish! But the devil has a price: it will cost Faustus his soul. Is this the best deal in history – absolutely everything for absolutely nothing? Or… is it perhaps the other way round…?
Splendid’s devilish cast of three pack a timeless tale into a thrilling hour of laughter, music, magic and amazement. Morality meets mortality in this ingenious reinvention of an Elizabethan drama that couldn’t be more contemporary.
