In the storyline, John Faustus turns to sorcery and magic to fulfill his desires. Mephistopheles, one of Lucifer's chief devils, becomes Faustus' servant and obeys his every command. For 24 years, Faustus lives out his wildest dreams, but as promised Lucifer returns to collect Faustus' soul. Faustus begs for mercy from God, but is his repentance is too late?
"This is a classic morality tale where Dr. Faustus sells his soul to devil for fame, fortune and knowledge. He is warned several times by different characters that he must repent and put his trust in God," said Dr. Carrie Ameling, Associate Professor of Theatre and English at Limestone College. "The play follows in the medieval tradition of presenting the idea of heaven and hell. I think this is a timeless play which teaches a lot of moral lessons from the Bible that audiences can relate to."
