Faustus: That Damned Woman description

My name is Johanna Faustus. I was born almost four hundred years ago.

I gave my soul to achieve the impossible.

I watched this city grow sick and I swore to heal it.

I might be damned, but I would save the world to spite the Devil.

Award-winning playwright Chris Bush reimagines the Faust myth to explore what we must sacrifice to achieve greatness, and the legacy that we leave behind.

Caroline Byrne directs this radical new work in which the iconic character of Faustus becomes a woman who makes the ultimate sacrifice in order to traverse centuries and change the course of history.

Jodie McNee and Danny Lee Wynter were superb

I went into Faustus: That Damned Woman tentatively excited but ultimately not really knowing what I was going into. What I found was a show that was tense and compelling, used a limited set and cast to great effect, and the performances of Jodie McNee as Faustus and Danny Lee Wynter as Mephistopheles were truly superb. Highly recommended!

Review: FAUSTUS: THAT DAMNED WOMAN at the Lyric Hammersmith

by Justin Murray | Tuesday, February 4 2020, 18:55

In the Hammersmith Lyric’s Faustus: That Damned Woman, Johanna Faustus does not have the title of Doctor when we first meet her. She’s just Johanna the apothecary’s daughter, obsessed with her mother, hanged as a witch.
