Doctor John Faustus, a scholar, makes a terrible and terrifying bargain with the Devil. He will give up his immortal soul in exchange for 24 years of power and excess. Attended by the demon Mephistopheles, he embarks on a life full of indulgence, proud and unrepentant. A Good Angel accompanies them, ever hopeful of saving Faustus from himself and the horrifying fate that awaits him if he cannot find penitence.
