Doctor Faustus

Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through Nov. 17

Christopher Marlowe was a contemporary of William Shakespeare, and Marlowe's plays were a large influence on Shakespeare's own. Of course, Shakespeare's work greatly eclipsed Marlowe's in popularity, consigning him to the past. Doctor Faustus is undoubtedly Marlowe's most famous play still — perhaps because of a persistent legend that actual devils appeared on stage during a sixteenth-century performance. John Wolbers has adapted the script for the modern era, while still keeping much of the original's poetry. Now the female Doctor Faustus is disgusted by the rampant abuse of power and position of the world's leaders, and so enters into a contract with the devil. She plans to use her new power for good, to save the weak and bring mercy to the world. But ultimate power has a nasty effect on the human soul, even when it's a noble one. Slightly Askew Theatre Ensemble presents Doctor Faustus at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday) October 31 to November 17 at the Chapel (6238 Alexander Drive; www.slightlyoff.org). Tickets are $15 to $20. $15-$20
