Directed by Jamie Lloyd and starring Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington and Olivier Award-winning Jenna Russell, Doctor Faustus sees Christopher Marlowe’s legendary tale explosively transported to a celebrity-driven society.

Six years since his last appearance on the London stage, Harington, best known for his role as Jon Snow in the epic television drama, makes an eagerly anticipated return as Faustus in this reimagining of the 400-year-old story of a man who sells his soul to the devil in exchange for fame, wealth and power.

Faustus’ hubris allows him to perform anything he pleases with black magic, catapulting him into a world of greed, instant gratification and high-profile celebrity.

But while his remarkable escalation in fortunes sees him become a world-renowned conjuror and international heartthrob, what of the price for his insatiable thirst for wealth and fame?

Performed by the Jamie Lloyd Company, widely-acclaimed for their imaginative reinvention of classic texts, this production features blackly comic new scenes by Colin Teevan, dynamic stage illusions, and a fresh, new perspective on the well-known story that hits home today.
