Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights

September 27 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Price: $6.00 – $12.00
Faustus FINAL poster

Legendary modernist Gertrude Stein’s 1938 Doctor Faustus Lights the Lights riffs on versions of the Faust myth, questioning traditional notions of knowledge, identity, and power. Doctor Faustus sells his soul to Mephisto for the power of electric light. A viper in the woods bites Marguerite Ida and Helena Annabel, a mysterious woman whose name is a mash-up of iconic literary characters. Suddenly, after Doctor Faustus heals her, she gains the power of natural light without selling her soul, making the ill-gotten gains of Doctor Faustus all for naught. Can Marguerite Ida and Helena Annabel’s multiplicity and connection with the natural world prevail over the moral bankruptcy of Doctor Faustus and the devil?
