Fortunate Son: A Faust Myth
A Coin & Ghost Production. Set in post-Vietnam New Orleans, “Fortunate Son” follows the story of John Faust (a writer-turned-critic wracked with survivor’s guilt) as he battles both his internal and external demons. Like all great adventures, his journey involves dance battles, heavy drinking, witchcraft, and uninvited blues music. It is a physical whirlwind born out of collective mythology, and it leans as heavily into heightened poetry as it does into lowbrow clown.
Written by Cecilia Fairchild and directed by Coin & Ghost Artistic Director, Zach Davidson.
