Demons is a free adaptation of Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustus, set in modern times. In Doctor Faustus a learned Doctor of Divinity sells his soul to the devil Mephistophilis for forbidden knowledge.
In Demons, Dr Faustus has become Peter Proud, a professor of Christian values at Harvard Divinity School, and this adaptation also ads a whole new section to the play, with a new character, the hero’s dead wife, and a new motive behind his quest for knowledge: the desire to resurrect her.
This is a full-cast performance featuring Richard Benjamin, Raymond Fox, Jonathan Fried, Jeremy Geidt, Timothy Karcher, John Lathan, Paula Prentiss, Matt Rauch, and Mark Zeisler.
