A priest, a prince and a philosopher walk into a bar….
This is not the start of a joke; rather, it is the premise for Wittenberg, the wickedly contentious and wildly comedic play about fate, faith and free will. What happens when you have a character who is willing to make a deal with the Devil, the man who sparked the Protestant Reformation, and an impressionable young prince suffering from indecisiveness in the same place at the same time? You get a tragical-comical-historical prequel to Hamlet, Doctor Faustus and the Protestant Reformation! This witty and provocative exploration of history and humanity by award-winning playwright David Davalos will appeal to anyone looking for big laughs and the answers to life’s big questions.
