After her radical PhD thesis is rejected, Faustine
accidentally summons the demon Mephistophilis, who offers to
end female pain in exchange for Faustine’s soul. But is this
ambitious scientist willing to be deprived of everlasting
bliss for the sake of all womankind? Can she trust a demon
who claims to be a feminist? Can periods truly be
eradicated? Inspired by Marlow’s Doctor Faustus, Faustine is
a two-handed, dark comedy which explores the struggles of
being a modern feminist and debates whether the rise can be
worth the fall. https://www.thehopetheatre.com/productions/faustine/
