A synopsis for the show reads: "Faustus makes a pact with the Devil, selling his soul in return for the ability to perform anything he pleases with the power of black magic. This fatal decision catapults him into an intoxicating world of celebrity, as he becomes a world-renowned conjuror, international heartthrob and friend of the rich, famous and powerful. But what is the cost of his insatiable thirst for wealth and fame?"

Soutra Gilmour designs the set, with lighting by Jon Clark and music and sound from Ben and Max Ringham. Movement direction's by Polly Bennett and fights are choreographed by Kate Waters.

All tickets for Monday performances will be £15, with some made available through a special outreach scheme aimed at schools and first-time theatregoers.

Doctor Faustus runs from April 9, booking until June 25.
