Kit Harington has signed on to star in a new theatrical production of Doctor Faustus. Harington has become well-known for playing Jon Snow on the Game of Thrones HBO series.
Here’s more from The Daily Mail: “Doctor Faustus is about a physician who makes a pact, in blood, with the devil. Lucifer gets the Doctor’s soul. But for 24 years, Faustus gets infinite knowledge and the chance to indulge in any and every fantasy he desires. He becomes well acquainted with the Seven Deadly Sins in the process.”
Deadline reports that the show will open on Apr. 9 at the Duke of York Theatre; this venue can be found in the West End within London. Christopher Marlowe published The Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus play back in 1604. Click here to download a free digital copy of this work.
