This adaptation – attributed to ‘Christopher Marlowe and other hands’ – was originally staged at the Royal Theatre, Northampton from 29 October to 20 November 2004.
“Two universes collide in this radical reworking of Marlowe’s classic DR FAUSTUS. From the white boxes of Britart to the Gothic cathedrals of 16th century Europe, from the Turner Prize ceremony to the lair of the seven deadly sins, Faustus and the Chapmans challenge the limits of life and art, risking everything in their pursuit of immortality. The two narratives begin independently but gradually seep into each other until both Marlowe’s characters and the world of contemporary art occupy the same hellish landscape.” – Headlong publicity, 2006
