Wittenberg, by playwright David Davalos, marks the 28th world premiere at Arden Theatre Company and is part of The Independence Foundation New Play Showcase.
Set during late October of 1517, the play is a smart, sprightly and audacious battle of wits. This clever comedy features university colleagues Dr. Faustus (a man of appetites) and Martin Luther (a man of faith) and their student Hamlet, Prince of Denmark (a youth struggling not only with his beliefs but also with his tennis game). Davalos presents the story behind the stories in a highly entertaining and accessible exploration of reason versus faith.
