Doctor Faustus: Your views
Jude Law
Doctor Faustus is the first theatre production from Natural Nylon
Jude Law returns to London's Young Vic as Doctor Faustus in the play of the same name.

It is the first production from the Natural Nylon Theatre Company, founded by Law, his wife Sadie Frost and Ewan McGregor.

"Performed by just seven actors on an elevated wooden dais that divides the audience into two halves, this first offering from the Natural Nylon Theatre Company is never dull and often compelling," wrote the BBC's Neil Young.

"However, given the company's ultra-fashionable founders, it is surprising how safe and conventional the production is."

But what do you think?

Does Law's screen presence translate to the stage? Is the play still relevant to a contemporary audience?
