Simon Evans (Silence of the Sea, Donmar Warehouse) has previously worked as a magical consultant for the National Theatre and Michael Grandage. By combining Evans' knowledge of magic and illusion with Goulding’s incredible video projections, Hannah (played by Kae Alexander, BBC3's Bad Education), seemingly floats down a mountain into the sea, spins the earth on its axis and plucks a star out of the sky without ever leaving the comfort of her bedroom.
'Repackaging Marlowe’s Dr Faustus for a teenage audience is savvy, ambitious programming from Purni Morell’s Unicorn Theatre, which continues to fire on all cylinders.'
'Intelligent and nail-bitingly other-worldly, this is an exhilarating and fast-paced production that will appeal to all ages.'
'Andrzej Goulding's projections are stunning'
