After Faust

Presented by RISER Edmonton 2023

Presented as part of RISER Edmonton 2023 with Common Ground Arts Society. For more about RISER, click here.

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.

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.
