Faustus: That Damned Woman Tickets

London Play
Faustus: That Damned Woman in London for 1 month only!
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. Award-winning playwright Chris Bush reimagines the Faust myth to explore what we must sacrifice to achieve greatness, and the legacy that we leave behind. 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. The Lyric run of this production is supported by Cockayne – Grants for the Arts and the London Community Foundation.

    A superb adaptation. Excellent acting, and a fabulous stage set that we all enjoyed very much and was inspiring for my 14 year old daughter who is a talented artist and has Asperger Syndrome.

    Really impressed but modern take on such a classic, really enjoyed use of lighting and effects however disappointed that the ending was anticlimactic in comparison to this

    I really enjoyed the play, I particularly though the acting was exceptional. Jodie McNee was absolutely brilliant. it was an interesting concept which worked to have a female lead and set it in the context of lack of opportunities which society gives (or gave) to women. the use of elizabeth garrett anderson &I marie curie as historic role models worked very well.

    Lyric theatre is a hidden gem. Amazingly beautiful venue in an unexpected area. Faustus has an utterly fabulous set, atmospheric, great cast - let down a little by a eclectic plot that takes a while to get going. Enjoyable none the less

    A truly excellent evening that challenged me. It was profound as well as humorous. It was one of those theatre experiences that you never forget and keep thinking about for days and days after. I loved it. The theatre was really comfortable too.

    Tour de force by Jodie McNee. Jodie is on stage for the entire show and your eyes never leave her. This is a great version of Faustus
