Doctor Faustus Returns!
My week has been brightened my the news that Kit Harington is returning to the stage for Christopher Marlowe’s play Doctor Faustus.
My favourite Game of Thrones character (‘You know nothing, Jon Snow’) will take on the title role in the 400-year-old story of the man who swaps his soul for the ability to do as his pleases with black magic. The play will be brought up to date by transporting the action to a celebrity-obsessed society of greed and instant gratification.
I’m attempting to save money now in order to get one of those front row seats!
