DumbWise and Greenwich Theatre present the award winning musical hit FAUST.
In DumbWise’s slick and stylish re-telling of Goethe’s classic, a young man sells his soul for fame and fortune, embarking on a musical spree of corruption and sin. Accompanied by a dark outsider, Faust tears his way through a God fearing community, setting his sights on the innocent but irresistible Gretchen, sparking a cacophony of chaos, calamity and murder. Poetic verse and stunning visuals collide with a masterful score of folk and blues songs, orchestrated live by an actor-musician cast.
DumbWise have adapted FAUST into an energetic and thrilling new musical for modern audiences. With their signature combination of live musicianship and dynamic storytelling, and a colorful soundtrack of original songs, FAUST is a truly unique theatre experience.
DumbWise are a highly acclaimed emerging theatre company that specialise in actor-musician adaptations. With the award winning FAUST and the sell-out revival of The Matchgirls at Wiltons Music Hall, they are fast becoming one of the finest and inventive actor-musician companies in London, and now offer their work on the national touring circuit.
