First produced between 1684-1688, this - as the title says - is Faust played as a comedy. Angels to go along with Mephistopholis and Lucifer and Beelzebub, sure, but also the Seven Deadly Sins and wait a minute - Scaramouche and Harlequin?? (The author Mountfort was also an actor and was killed trying to prevent an attempt to kidnap an actress in a case that ended up in the House of Lords.) - Summary by ToddHW Cast list: Dr Faustus: Beth Thomas Mephistopholis: Ian Quinlan Good Angel: Frances Brown Bad Angel: TriciaG Scaramouche: alanmapstone Harlequin: Anastasiia Solokha Lucifer: Chuck Williamson Beelzebub: Availle Pride: Rapunzelina Covetousness: russellhughes Envy: Mary Kay Wrath: Kristin Gjerløw Gluttony: Elizabeth Klett Sloth: Anna Simon Leachery: bala Giant: David Olson Horse-courser: ToddHW Carter: Kadier Carter Hostess: Kristin Gjerløw Old Man: Rapunzelina Emperor: russellhughes Benoolio: David Olson Lord: Gillian Schnurr Second Lord: ToddHW Poor : bala Second Poor : Rapunzelina Third Poor : ToddHW Fourth Poor : TriciaG Scholar: Elizabeth Klett Stage Directions: ToddHW Edited By: ToddHW
