'The horse courser, rehearsal sketch' by Carol Chilcott

The horse courser: This is the first appearance of the horse which Faustus has magicked out of hay. Carol has put lots of people in this picture when there should have only been one, Tina Kelly who holds up the horse’s head as the horse is magically created. The only other people on stage are Chris as Mephistophilis, Steve as Faustus and Mary as the story teller but they are standing to the sides so that the focus can be on the horse.
