CHRISTOPHER Marlowe's classic play Dr Faustus is being performed at Watford Palace Theatre next Thursday and Friday, January 28 and 29.

The production is part of a partnership between the theatre and Herts County Council and is aimed at giving local young people an opportunity to experience high quality professional theatre.

The legend of Dr Faustus, a man who sells his soul to the Devil for knowledge and power, has been produced countless times on stage and screen.

Its universal themes have ensured the play's survival since it was first performed in 1592 and as well as the two performances at Watford Palace, schools will be able to book a performance.

It is also being performed at Trestle Arts Base in St Albans at 7.30pm on Thursday, March 4.

The production is directed by George Perrin who is co-founder and artistic director of nabokov who are creative associates of Watford Palace Theatre, and designed by Signe Beckmann.

It starts at 7.30pm both evenings with a Thursday matinee at 2.30pm and tickets are £12.50 with concessions and groups £8, available by calling 01923 225671 or go to www.watfordpalacetheatre.co.uk
