Ghosts

Presented by: Fawkes Theatre Company

Henrik Ibsen’s Ghosts is an evocative story that portrays the idea that the life of a child is guided by the actions of the parents. Regina and Oswald, still in their youth, are forced to face the consequences of their parent’s mistakes; while other characters are haunted by them. As Ibsen once said “the sins of the father are visited on the child.”

Doctor Faustus

Presented by PLoT Theatre Society

 “Nay, thou must feel them, taste the smart of all: She that loves pleasure must for pleasure fall.”

A new look into Christopher Marlowe’s classic story of temptation, damnation, and desire. Doctor Joan Faustus wants: she wants success, she wants knowledge, and most of all she wants power. Driven by desire, Faustus makes a pact with the devil, and is catapulted headlong into a fantastical world of magical visions, devilish liars, and horrors in disguise. But even immersed in a world of material wealth and instant gratification, the question of repentance and the cost of damnation always hangs in the air, and Hell is only one tragedy away.

Patron advice: Occult themes, minor sexual content
