Gateway Theatre at Chester Cathedral : James Hayes as Doctor Faustus :  directed by David Thacker

The principle joy of this production was the wonderful James Hayes in the title role.  He has since written an entertaining memoir about his half-century as a working actor called Shouting in the Evenings:  50 Years on the Stage

Doctor Faustus has some great speeches, but the comic scenes, which were the ones I was mostly involved with, can be hard work.  I remember struggling with the material. I assume the audience must have struggled, too.

This was the first of three plays I did at Chester with David Thacker, Chris Honer’s associate director. After a fifteen year gap, we were to encounter each other again at the Royal Shakespeare Company.
