UNION, NJ - See what happens when a man decides to sell his soul to the devil in exchange for the secrets of life.
A special production of Doctor Faustus, presented by the Hudson Shakespeare Company, is scheduled for the Union Public Library on Saturday, Oct. 26.
The production sees the German intellect, Doctor Faustus at a loss as to what he must become a master of next. He finally decides on magic and calls upon Mephistopheles, a servant of the devil, for his help. Faustus makes an offer the devil can't refuse-he will sign away his soul in exchange for 24 years of life and Mephistopheles at his beck and call in order to discover the secrets of life. Faustus then embarks on a journey through time and space in order to discover all of life's meaning. Who will he meet? Where will he travel to? What will he learn? And ultimately - what happens when his time is up?
The production will begin at 2:00 p.m. in the Main Library, 1980 Morris Avenue, and will be presented in Victorian costuming.
