Next up in Mantua, Italy: Christopher Marlowe, “Il Dottor Faust” (15, 22, 29 Sept 2015)

Paper Stage - Il Dottor Faust poster

Tomorrow in Mantua will see the first of a three-part reading of Il Dottor Faust, an Italian translation of Christopher Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus by Nemi D’Agostino. Readers will be getting together for a lively and interactive reading of the translation, which is based on the B-text of 1616, on the 15th, 22nd and 29th of September. The Italian readings are organised by Clara Prezzavento, founder of Il Palcoscenico di Carta (‘The Stage of Paper’), which is one of three societies of The Paper Stage, a public Renaissance play-reading network. The other Paper Stage societies in Surrey and Kent are also organising readings of Doctor Faustus for some time in the next 6 weeks, so watch out for news on this blog.
