This production very reflective of Narratives of the Self, as it is one giant "narrative of the self" in its entirety. It is the story of a German doctor who sells her soul to the devil in order to achieve "true happiness." In the doctor's quest for this elusive true happiness, many lives are altered forever––and even destroyed. At the end of it, the doctor is forced to evaluate her own concept of selfhood, and must bear the reality of what she has created. Furthermore, this adaptation of Faust is adapted for an all-female feminist interpretation and cast, and therefore it is contemplative not only of gender and selfhood subjects contemporary to the time in which it was written (1700s), but also to issues of autonomy and gender in our modern era.
