The Hudson Shakespeare Company performs Doctor Faustus on Sunday, Oct. 27, at 2 p.m., at Trumbull Library, 33 Quality St., as part of its Library Halloween Tour.
The German intellect, Doctor Faustus is at a loss as to what he must become a master of next. He finally decides on magic and calls upon Mephistopheles, a servant of the devil, for his help. Faustus makes an offer the devil cannot refuse — he will sign away his soul in exchange for 24 years of life and Mephistopheles at his disposal in order to discover the secrets of life. Faustus then embarks on a journey through time and space in order to discover all of life's meaning.
