FAUST LIVE! - A Fundraiser for Halifax Humanities
Marlowe and Goethe in 24 hours
Nov 22 - 23, 2019. 7pm - 7pm.
University of King's College, KTS Lecture Hall.
Over the course of 24 hours, teams of readers will be working their way through two great plays about a man who makes an ill-fated deal with the Devil: Christopher Marlowe’s Dr. Faustus, and Goethe’s Faust: Parts 1 & 2. Come and join us to hear about all of the devilish hijinks that ensue!
There is no admission fee for this event, but donations will be gratefully accepted at the door, and teams of readers will be collecting pledges in support of our program. To donate to this event online, please visit us here! If you're supporting a particular Faust Live team, be sure to indicate which one in the message box. Your donations will help Halifax Humanities continue to provide free, non-credit, university-level courses in the humanities to adults living on low incomes in the HRM.
