Tangle, South West England’s African Caribbean theatre company are back with another powerful, poetic show in a unique version of Christopher Marlowe’s classic.
An unquenchable desire for fame drives the scholar Faustus to learn the magic of the dark arts. He summons the demon Mephastophilis using him to strike a deal with Lucifer, bargaining his soul for twenty-four years of infinite power. The cost of his worldwide notoriety is infinitely high, as the damned hour approaches.
Tangle interweave music and song with electric performances in a unique and powerful homage. This is stripped back storytelling and powerful drama at its best.
