FAUST by Johann Wolfgang Goethe, translated by John R. Williams, with Samuel West as Faust and Toby Jones as Mephistopheles. Adapted and directed by David Timson, with music composed by Roger Marsh.

Written late in Goethe's life, this second journey into the story of Faust presents a series of episodic scenes in which the poet places his eponymous hero in a variety of surprising circumstances reflecting the predicament of humanity. Funny, reflective and moving, this dramatisation shows why Goethe's Faust had such a massive influence on Western culture.

Musicians: The 24, directed by the composer with Peyee Chen (soprano) Georgina Wells (harp) and Mark Hutchinson (oboe)
Sound Design and Additional Music by Norman Goodman.
