About the Resource

Ever dreamt of the perfect life? Ever thought what you would do to get it?

Sell your soul, perhaps?

Crossroads is a modern, re-vamped telling of the Faustus myth, full of bizarre and surreal characters who inhabit a man’s ‘perfect’ world given through a deal with the devil. As he basks in his paradise Old Nick comes back to complete the terms of the contract and in doing so reveals the real stories of those he has mistreated.


A perfect play for Edexcel GCSE, equally suitable for AQA Unit 2 Acting option. The play allows access for all, but will also move those higher performing students into the very top band enabling them to dazzle with studied and multi role performances. The play also makes for an excellent BTEC, Youth Theatre and adult performance. Crossroads is an exciting, entertaining and unnerving tale that has a message for us all.


For 6 – 9 Performers and flexible running times from 30 - 45 minutes.
