THE TRAGICAL HISTORY OF DOCTOR FAUSTUS, a play by Christopher Marlowe
Directed by Raphael Massie
Would you sell your soul to the devil for your heart’s desire?
In The Tragical History of Doctor Faustus, playwright Christopher Marlowe explores religion, magic, and, for better or worse, the consequences of power. Filled with supernatural phenomena, angels, demons, as well as mortal characters of every sort, this particular production draws inspiration from the High Middle Ages, and the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, the origin of our modern-day Halloween. A Medieval setting for this Elizabethan play highlights a shift in religious practice, from Paganism (and others), to the early centuries of Christianity, providing a lens through which we are able to experience Marlowe’s own views on faith, both spiritual and political.
Raphael Massie is a professional director, actor, and educator who specializes in classical theatre. In 2013, he received his MFA in Staging Shakespeare from the University of Exeter (UK), and upon graduating, was awarded the Classical Fellowship for Directors of Color by the Drama League of New York. Most recently, he was a finalist for the Killian Directing Fellowship at Oregon Shakespeare Festival. His directing credits include: Romeo and Juliet for the Elm Shakespeare Company, Assistant Directing at Shakespeare and Company for Founding Artistic Director Tina Packer on productions of The Merchant of Venice and Cymbeline, as well as directing productions of Julius Caesar, Polaroid Stories, Stop Kiss, and Lysistrata at Southern Connecticut State University.
