DOC FAUSTUS –  A Soulless Western.
Direct from the United States, via the 2013 Adelaide Fringe Festival on a whirlwind national tour of Australia!
Patrick Hercamp, Richard Maritzer and Ryan Adam Wells make up Sound & Fury, a vaudeville-nouveau troupe that performs this twisted American Wild West adaptation of Christopher Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus.
Hercamp plays the renowned Doc Faustus as a clueless dude, who dabbles in dark magic just to play tricks on people. By selling his soul to the devil, he gets a demon (Mephistopheles, played by Maritzer) to do his bidding for the next 24 years.
The extent of their parody on both Doctor Faustus and the Western movie genre knows no bounds. They treat the story with a great deal of intelligence, consciously calling their interpretation of the West ‘revisionist history,’ but filling every other moment with both witticisms and vulgarity.
 ■“Three zany Vaudevillians mix classic theatre with slapstick comedy, song and pop-culture references”.
 ■“People’s Choice Award” – Adelaide Fringe Festival 2008, 2009 and 2011.
 ■“….Amazing comic timing and chemistry! The group performs with wit and panache!”– LA Weekly
 ■“One of the best comedies to be found at the Edinburgh Fringe!” – Broadway Baby (UK)
