The University of New Mexico's Department of Theatre & Dance and SCRAP Productions present "Dr. Faustus," a play written by Christopher Marlowe and directed by Justino Brokaw Oct. 21-30 in UNM's Experimental Theatre in the Center for the Arts building.

The classic play is performed with a modern twist making Faustus a professor at UNM rather than at the Medieval University of Wittenberg. The play explores the mind of Faustus and the dark world he creates for himself by summoning the demon Mephistopheles and offering his soul to Lucifer in the quest for ultimate power and knowledge. Soon realizing his mistake, Faustus leads the audience into a tale of ambition, despair, debauchery and revelation as Heaven and Hell battle for his soul.

Parents should use caution when bringing children to the performance as it includes adult language and situations.

Ticket prices are $12 general admission, $10 faculty and seniors, $8 UNM staff and students and are available at the UNM Ticket Office at the UNM Bookstore or at The Pit located at University and Avenida Caesar Chavez, by phone at: (505) 925-5858 or online at
