Fausto é mefisto – funny Faust script

funny Faust script


In this funny Faust script, Faust, a writer of philosophical comedies with a stable job (he has tenure) and a good life is approached by the devil in the form of a small black dog called Mafisto. He immediately offers him whatever his heart desires, in return for his immortal soul. Faust finds it kind of difficult to concentrate, really as the dog insists on playing patty cakes with him the entire time.  But just what does Faust think is worth his immortal soul?

Who was Faust?

”Faust is the protagonist of a classic German legend, based on the historical Johann Georg Faust (c. 1480–1540).

The erudite Faust is highly successful yet dissatisfied with his life, which leads him to make a pact with the Devil, exchanging his soul for unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures. The Faust legend has been the basis for many literary, artistic, cinematic, and musical works that have reinterpreted it through the ages. “Faust” and the adjective “Faustian” imply a situation in which an ambitious person surrenders moral integrity in order to achieve power and success for a delimited term.” – Source – Wikipedia.
