About This Show

Target Margin Theater, keepers of the downtown “avant-flame,” tackle select excerpts in an exciting new translation of Goethe’s sprawling epic, Faust, Parts I and II. See what happens to poor Dr. Faustus when he becomes the pawn in a cruel poker-style wager between the forces of good and evil. Which side has the high hand and which side is bluffing?

Target Margin Theater’s work on Goethe’s Faust, Parts I and II is a multi-year project. These Very Serious Jokes, the first installment of the project, will be presented in January of 2004 at HERE. As development unfolds over the coming seasons, installments will continue to be presented publicly with a final presentation of all the pieces, in rep, sometime in 2005.
