This thesis deals with the scenography for Christopher Marlowe's The Tragical History of the Life and Death of Doctor Faustus. The themes of the play are explored through the costume, scenic, and lighting design. Through researching the period and extensive research of devils and their depiction throughout history, the costumes were influenced. The scenic design was explored through sketches and various models, informed through prior scenic designs, and designed to represent the change of Faustus's soul throughout the play. The final design fully realized my ideas and concepts about the play and a realized production would be challenging and extremely exciting. My designs enhanced the play and would add to the audience's understanding of it.
