IUP Theater and Dance faculty member Rick Kemp is performing in a production of faustUS at the Kelly Strayhorn Theater in Pittsburgh, September 8 through 12, 2009.

The show is an adaptation of Christopher Marlowe’s play Doctor Faustus, dating from 1593, and is the first production of a new independent theater company, 404 Strand, that Kemp has formed with an international group of theater artists. The project is supported by an IUP Academic Excellence and Innovation Award and through major external funding from the Heinz Endowments and the Pittsburgh Foundation, together with assistance from Pittsburgh Filmmakers.
