Throughout history there has been little exploration or discovery of what the Faustian myth means for the woman, the female, or the feminine.
Dark Night of the Soul is a festival of new writing, with five new short plays written in response to the Faustian bargain by an ensemble of women writers that includes Lily Bevan, Athena Stevens, Lisa Hammond and Rachael Spence, Katie Hims and Amanda Wilkin.
Written especially for the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse – and performed in tandem with Macbeth and Doctor Faustus, Shakespeare’s and Marlowe’s interpretations of the Faustian myth – Dark Night of the Soul brings together a chorus of female voices at the crossroads, asking the question: What would you sell your soul for?
Please be advised that some performances include strong language.
