Award-winning playwright Chris Bush re-imagines the Faust myth in FAUSTUS: THAT DAMNED WOMAN at the Lyric Hammersmith to explore what we must sacrifice to achieve greatness, and the legacy that we leave behind.
My name is 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.
I might be damned, but I would save the world to spite the Devil.
Caroline Byrne directs this radical new work in which the iconic character of Faustus becomes a woman who makes the ultimate sacrifice in order to traverse centuries and change the course of history.
*Please note: This production is suitable for ages 12+.
