Reprising a performance the Marlowe Society of America called “one of the most dynamic ever seen at the Shakespeare Tavern," Resurgens Theatre Company returns to Atlanta this autumn with Marlowe’s timeless tragedy of forbidden knowledge and devilish ambition. Directed by Dr. Brent Griffin, this “original practices” production offers a stripped down, psychologically driven version of the play that focuses sharply on the relationship between Faustus and Mephastophilis (and by extension, Faustus and his own highly vexed conscience). And, with the exception of Faustus, all the roles will be played by women. Also, in recognition of Marlowe’s 450th birthday, an enhanced musical score containing portions of Nicholas Lanier's seventeenth-century adaptation of Hero and Leander will be included.

$20 for Adults
