Dr Faustus: Schools Performances

By Christopher Marlowe Directed by Martin Berry Running Time: approximately 2 hours Suitable for 14+ years Faustus is a respected and hugely successful man. He is also doomed by his own hubris, greed and ambition. Bored of logic and mundane life, he makes a pact with the devil: 24 years of unimaginable power in return for his own damnation into hell. One of the original and greatest morality stories, with plenty of laughs along the way. Doctor Faustus and its themes of power and corruption are as relevant today as they were in 1604. Following our first co-production of Lysistrata in 2013, Lakeside is delighted to be working in Partnership with the Nottingham New Theatre to bring Marlowe's brilliant classic play to our stage. "A hugely enjoyable satirical comedy" - Nottingham Evening Post on Lysistrata. INFORMATION FOR SCHOOLS: RAISING ATTAINMENT AT A-LEVEL Lakeside delivers a programme of pre-show introduction and post-show interaction with the cast and director; this is complemented by classroom preparation and follow-up materials prepared by Education Consultant Claire Grosvenor, Lakeside's Learning Officer Rachel Feneley and Director Martin Berry. "Clearly a resource pack designed by a Drama teacher who understands the demands of different syllabuses; the workpack is invaluable" - Teacher evaluation.
