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 is reimagined as a woman who makes the ultimate sacrifice to traverse centuries and change the course of history.
It will premiere at the Lyric Hammersmith Theatre in January 2020 before playing at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre from 24 February. It will then tour the UK, visiting Bristol Old Vic, Leeds Playhouse and Northern Stage throughout March and April 2020.
