Doctor Faustus at Duke of York's Theatre



Experience Christopher Marlowe's cautionary drama as the legendary tale of Doctor Faustus explodes onto the stage at the Duke of York's Theatre.

Praised for its innovative and anarchic reinvention of theatre classics, The Jamie Lloyd Company propels Marlowe's black comedy into the here and now in a dazzling new production starring Kit Harington (Jon Snow in TV series Game of Thrones) in his long-awaited return to the London's West End stage.

Faustus makes a pact with the devil, selling his soul in return for the ability to astounded audiences with real acts of magic. Faustus’s dark powers launch him into an intoxicating world of fame, fortune and excess. But what is the cost of this great illusion?

With new scenes penned by Colin Teevan and dynamic stage tricks, Marlowe’s 400-year-old play continues to question society's obsession with celebrity.
