The Drama Club presents Faust
After a four-year hiatus, The Drama Club returns with their largest production to date, the premiere of Faust by Michael Federico, Jeffrey Schmidt, and Lydia Mackay—freely adapted from Goethe and Marlowe.
Years from now, renowned chemist Dr. John Faust lives and works in the world of Big Pharma, “male-enhancement” pills, and easy weight-loss drugs. But when he tests the bounds of medicine in an attempt to “see the mind of God,” Faust is forced underground and into the Wasteland. Lucky for him, that’s where all the fun happens. With the aid of Mephistopheles, Faust transforms into an object of worship for cosplayers, club kids, and criminals. Of course, the Devil only lets you dance for a little while. To find the one thing he truly wants, Faust might just have to sell his soul.
This new adaptation of Faust fuses elements of theater, movement, music, and good old-fashioned horror to bring this classic tale of Good and Evil to life.
Performance will take place in Bryant Hall in the Kalita Humphreys Theater complex.
