The Globe 2011 production of Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustus
Doctor Faustus is Christopher Marlowe's most renowned and controversial work.

In the first-ever staging of this menacing drama at the Globe Theatre, Matthew Dunster's production features Paul Hilton as the arrogant, power-hungry Faustus and Arthur Darvill as the sardonic Mephistopheles, and includes several impressive magical stunts along the way.
