Doctor Faustus sits in his Wittenberg study, restless for knowledge and frustrated with the limitations of conventional scholarship. Coveting fame and power, he conjures the menacing demon, Mephistopheles, who offers Faustus a deal: in exchange for twenty-four years of supreme power and service from the demon, Faustus must sacrifice his immortal soul to a fiery Hell.
The Devil’s deal is signed in blood and Faustus’ powers elevate him to unrivalled notoriety as he travels the world performing wonders. Yet as time ticks on and Faustus’ final hour of reckoning approaches, the true cost of his bargain becomes an all too certain reality.
