The Devil's Own Game

The damned soul of Doctor Faustus, whose punishment is to inspire discoveries only to see them perverted, finds himself in the lab of a young physicist. Through the machinations of Faustus and Mephistophilis, she will either redeem the world or damn it to a new level of suffering. A contemporary remix/update of a classical archetype, influenced by the work of Neil Gamian and Foucalt.

    I directed this play as a staged reading for Turn to Flesh Productions, NY. It was a spiritual, physical, and intellectual workout for all involved. Looking forward to its next incarnation. Recommended if you always thought Faust got a raw deal and/or you live for the thrill of discovery.
