SYNOPSIS

John Faustus, in his soul-consuming quest for knowledge and power, conjures up the most hellish spirits of the underworld, and strikes a bargain with the devil that's just too good to be true. Christopher Marlowe's classic take on magic and mortality is brought to life by an ensemble of actors and designers working collectively to reconstruct one of the most controversial plays of the last 500 years.

Through the use of opera, sequins, slapstick, devil horns, angel wings, banjos, fake beards, magic, men in skirts, sex, religion, politics, fireworks, whips, Helen of Troy and the Seven Deadly Sins themselves, Theater Reconstruction Ensemble tells the ultimate tale of good vs. evil. Hold on to your soul, cause the devil is on the prowl.

SYNOPSIS

Nora's struggle to play the part of her husband's obedient little lark culminates in the door slam heard 'round the world.
