University of Wittenberg, October 1517. Hamlet, his mentor John Faustus, and Faustus’ colleague and Hamlet’s instructor and priest, Martin Luther, all collide in a brilliant theatrical construction by playwright David Davalos. A smart, sprightly, and audacious battle of wits, the play brings us the story behind the stories in a highly entertaining and accessible exploration of reason versus faith.
“Bursts with a Stoppardian eagerness to tickle as it tangles with weightier issues… Hilarity, thy name is WITTENBERG.” —New York Times.
Wittenberg features Jeremy Beck, Chris Mixon, Tom Frey and Sara Kennedy. Directed by Keith Stevens. Rated PG-13
