This was billed to me as a play about science; it isn't. It's a play about sex, particularly homosexual sex, where one of the characters is a philosopher, and the other character has a disc that explains chaos theory and contains applications to use it to control the world. This is the only (totally tangential) relationship to science. The driving point of the play is purely philosophical, and also a standard boy-meets-boy with the added "benefit" of including online conversations. Not really much to write home about.
About This Item
Mark Ravenhill's Faust (Faust is Dead) is a dark and often brutally funny journey through a world of virtual reality
The world's most famous philosopher arrives in Los Angeles and is greeted as a star. In a round of chat show appearances, he announces the Death of Man and the End of History. When he meets up with a young man who is on the run from his father, a leading software magnate, they embark on a hedonistic voyage across America. But in the play's bloody conclusion, they discover that not all events are virtual."In Shopping and Fucking, Mark Ravenhill made theatre relevant to the Thatcher generation. Now he's put videos and Net-surfing in FAUST. And it's no less stunning." (The Guardian)
