Fistbump with the devil

Doktor Hans Faust is tired of the lack of success plaguing his world-saving experiments, and turns to diabolical powers on a whimsical impluse. They're not real, anyway ... until they suddenly are, and Mephisto himself is standing in his parlour. The demon offers Faust everything he yearns for: appreciation; influence; power. The price he demands: that Faust helps him with the execution of truly devilish plans …

Open air theatre on the campus

Like Täter Unknown (summer 2023 and spring 2024), FAUST. Teufel komm raus is a cooperation with the Bibliothek im Zentrum. The play is staged open air on the FH City Campus in Schlögelgasse 22-26, 2700 Wiener Neustadt.

Just like Goethe, but completely different

FAUST. Teufel komm raus revises the famous material revolving around Faust, Gretchen, and Mephistopheles in a novel, unusual adaptation, and the format is equally novel and unusual: for the first time, the open air-spectacle unfolds the dramatic potential of the picturesque campus "backyard" at the foot of the FH-"knowledge tower". The available infrastructure is developed into several stages on which the well-known battle for Faust's soul flares into a showdown Goethe wouldn't have dared dream of.

A hellishly great cast & a heavenly crew
