A satire on 20th century artistic endeavour using a variation on the Faust myth. Young, ambitious funeral artist Barclay Belaqua rankles under the humiliation of running an unsuccessful funeral parlour. His frustration leads him to sell, not his soul, but his body in a demonic pact. We trace the events of Barclay's life as he gives up body parts progressively to satisfy his craving for artistic renown. A futuristic Gothic atmosphere, delicious language and "depraved satire" make this a distinctively funny play.
