I am 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. 

A play from award-winning playwright Chris Bush. A co-production with Fallen Angels Dance Theatre. This gripping, unforgettable drama explores what we must sacrifice to achieve greatness in an original reimagining of the legend of Faust, who sells his soul to the devil in return for unlimited knowledge and pleasure, only to squander both.

What would you do in his place?
Be careful what you wish for…

“FAUSTUS: That Damned Woman will be a dramatic, powerful and fantastically exhilarating and we can’t wait for our audiences to experience it!” Helen Redcliffe, Producer, Storyhouse  

The story endures because greed endures, and ambition endures, and we are never short of contemporary figures who believe they can beat the system, or that the rules needn’t apply to them.” – Chris Bush, writer
