Don Faust - workshop

Choose a theme

Don Faust is a play about a thinker who is developing a theory of love. It re-imagines two legends - the German story of Doctor Faustus, who sold his soul to the devil, and the Spanish story of Don Juan, a womaniser.

You can also follow Don Faust on Facebook:

I'll be recruiting a director and actors to help me develop the play. In the workshops (that will be held in central Auckland), and in the time between them, I'll transform my draft of the play into a production-ready script. At the end of this process, the actors will give a public reading of the play - and you'll be invited! After the reading, we'll answer any questions you have about the workshop process. You'll also be invited to give feedback on the play.

Your donation will help me to pay the director and actors - and to cover venue, printing, and promotional costs.

Thank you!



  • An update on the new campaign


    Thank you to those of you who've donated to the new campaign! So far, we've raised just over 30%.

    We've still got a way to go, though - so if you're able to help out, please donate here:

    Thank you!

  • Another go


    Thank you again to those of you who donated to Don Faust!

    I’m sorry that we didn’t reach our target. We gave it a really good go, though, making it past $1,000.

    Unfortunately, it was all-or-nothing, so the donations are being refunded.

    Boosted are letting me give this another go – so I’m asking you, once again, to please support this project. I’ve revised the project, and this time the target is much lower: $1,000. As long as we reach that, anything we raise will go towards the workshop. I’ll find a way to make up the difference, whatever it is, so that the workshop can go ahead later this year.

    Here’s the renewed campaign:

    Thank you for your support!

    Thank you to everyone who has already donated!

    I especially want to thank the anonymous donors – because, not knowing who you are, I haven’t been able to thank you individually.

    We have 5 days left to reach the target, and it’s all-or-nothing! So please spread the word...
