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.

Two stuck up veteran actors are waiting for the final audition for the part of Hamlet. They are waiting on a third actor, who just happens to be the young handsome lead for a well known local medical drama. When he arrives, it becomes apparent that the young actor actually knows very little about Shakespeare (But he did some in high school.) At first, the the two veterans are not amused, but then they decide to mess with him, thinking that he would never get the part, being so unskilled. However, their plans go awry when it turns out that the director plans to give the part to the handsome young actor in spite of all that, because he thinks it will attract an audience. And that on top of that, he wants them to help the young actor get the part.

Charles is convinced that he’s actually French – to the extent that he speaks in a French accent, and talks garbled ‘French’ to total strangers that he meets. This annoys his girlfriend, Penelope to no end. When he befriends two confused French girls and talks to them in ‘French,’ Penelope is embarrassed and begs him to stop. But Charles won’t be deterred and thinks he knows a way to convince Penny that he is in fact French.
