230 5151). 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.
