To study philosophy or not to study philosophy, that is the question, or one of them, faced by the famed Prince of Denmark as he returns for his senior year of college, circa 1518. In David Davalos' hyper-literate comedy, Hamlet is desperately trying to focus on improving his tennis game while philosophy prof Dr. Faustus and theologist Martin Luther engage in a spirited volley to try to lure him into their schools of thought. Wittenberg, winner of the prestigious Edgerton Foundation New American Plays Award, makes its Bay Area premiere, courtesy of Aurora Theatre Company. Learn More

This play is just plain fun to see. You really get the payoff in the second act. The six female characters are all played by the same actress. She doesn't fully develop all 6 but it's a treat to see her make the transformations. The translation is notable for modernizing the narrative. At first the two male actors seemed to have been miscast but as the play goes on they both feel well suited to their respective roles.
