Immersive Production Of Mickle Maher's AN APOLOGY... Comes To NYC This Halloween

Robert Malbrough and Zeynep Akca present a strictly limited engagement of AN APOLOGY FOR THE COURSE AND OUTCOME OF CERTAIN EVENTS DELIVERED BY DOCTOR JOHN FAUSTUS ON THIS HIS FINAL EVENING by Mickle Maher.

This thrilling new roving site-specific production of Mickle Maher's diabolically clever play tours two boroughs of New York City from October 25-31 for three performances only!

Directed by Robert Malbrough, AN APOLOGY FOR THE COURSE AND OUTCOME OF CERTAIN EVENTS DELIVERED BY DOCTOR JOHN FAUSTUS ON THIS HIS FINAL EVENING stars Geoffrey Hellauer Geiger as John Faustus and Rachel Weekley as Mephistopheles.

Drunk, disturbed, and existentially challenged, John Faustus returns from the future with a distinct need to apologize to someone... anyone... maybe even you...

Each performance of this riveting play will take place at an entirely different location. Offering a truly unique experience every night:

  • October 25 is in the crypt beneath The Church of the Intercession in Harlem! Countless people have been entombed at this 110-year-old Gothic Revivalist Cathedral, and New York City landmark, including the cathedral's architect. The perfect location to come face-to-face with evil.
  • October 26 is in a storefront in the heart of the East Village just steps from Thompson Square Park!
  • October 31 is a special 11PM Halloween performance in Bushwick! This former industrial space is the perfect location to witness Faustus' final hour on earth in real time, and is just steps away from the best bars and restaurants in Bushwick for post-show revelry! Hosted by Bushwick's 4th Floor Studios.

AN APOLOGY FOR THE COURSE AND OUTCOME OF CERTAIN EVENTS DELIVERED BY DOCTOR JOHN FAUSTUS ON THIS HIS FINAL EVENING premiered in 1999 at Theater Oobleck in Chicago. It was revived 10 years later in 2009 to rave reviews and numerous awards, including 10 Best Plays of 2009 (Time Out Chicago) and Best of Fringe (Chicago Tribune.)

Unseen in New York since its brief appearance in the 2001 NY Fringe Festival, this multi-venue site-specific production celebrates the 20th anniversary of this maddeningly profound play.
