Summary

THE STORY: Faustus has it all-fame, success, a loving family, but a careless wager with a beguiling magician threatens everything. In Mamet's retelling of the Faustus story, a famed philosopher in the prime of life claims to have reduced the secret of life to a mathematical equation. With the arrival of a mysterious magician, he agrees to wager the life of his family on the accuracy and authenticity of his discovery. This timeless retelling of a classic legend explores one man's discovery of life's most important and fragile treasures. In scope and theatrical sensibility, FAUSTUS represents a big departure for Mamet, melding resplendent language and metaphysics in an eerie and moving retelling of the tragedy of Doctor Faustus.
