More about Set Design

We're nearly half way there! Thank you so much to all our backers for your support.

Today we have a video update to share with you about the set design for Faustus. Here's Chrissey to tell you more about our ambitious plans and the inspiration behind them.

The set we're building forms an integral part of the way we tell the story. Far from a basic, static backdrop, the set will incorporate a changing look, UV fluorescent designs and flowing liquids to create a dynamic setting for Faustus' journey

Not only that, but we have to set up and pack down the set in only 30 minutes, so it will incorporate a number of clever design tricks to make assembly quick and easy.

Your pledges will help these plans reach their full potential, so please share this video to help us reach our target. Please also feel free to leave comments and share your opinions and feedback.
