Game of Throne’s star Kit Harington makes return to London stage

Kit Harington is making his long-awaited return to the London stage this April, starring in Christopher Marlowe’s legendary tale Doctor Faustus.

Known worldwide for playing Jon Snow in Game of Thrones, Kit is now preparing to explode back into the West End.

His character, Faustus, makes a pact with the Devil; selling his soul in return for the ability to perform absolutely anything he pleases with the power of black magic.

“This fatal decision catapults him into an intoxicating world of celebrity,” explains the official release, “as he becomes a world-renowned conjuror, international heartthrob and friend of the rich, famous and powerful. But what is the cost of his insatiable thirst for wealth and fame?”

Expect stunning stage illusions as we see the story of this 400-year-old play is consumed by society obsessed by celebrity and greed.

Kit Harington stars in Doctor Faustus at London’s Duke of York’s Theatre from 9 April 2016.
