'The horse courser scene, rehearsal sketch' by Carol Chilcott

The horse courser: This is an amalgamation of the whole of the scene, including Roy Tanner, the horse courser, leading the horse around the stage; the horse courser coming back to Faustus and complaining the horse has disappeared and all that’s left is a load of hay; Mephistophilis appearing more like Lucifer, and Faustus asleep in front of the stage.
