Many know the classic tragedy of Doctor Faustus, who made a deal with a demon and ultimately gave up his soul. But few have asked the question, “what happened to the demon Mephistopheles after?” Performed in ASL by a Deaf cast, After Faust surfaces the oft-painful questions and choices that lay along the path of forgiveness and self-transformation.
All performances will be presented with English captions. Performances on January 31, February 2 and February 4 will feature live voice-over in spoken English.
ABOUT TICKET PRICING
After Faust aims to remove financial barriers to this production by providing Offer What You Will pricing options so 25% of the tickets to each performance can be purchased at low or no cost. Any amount you provide goes directly to the artists. A portion of every $50 ticket will be contributed to a new scholarship fund being developed by The Invisible Practice for Deaf students entering a theatre career in post-secondary education in Alberta.
