More informationA free adaptation of Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustus, set in modern times. In Demons, Dr Faustus has become Peter Proud, a rather bored Professor of Christian Morals at Harvard Divinity School who becomes obsessed with the supernatural world. This adaptation also ads a whole new section to the play, with a new character, the hero’s dead wife, and a new motive behind his quest for knowledge: the desire to resurrect her.
