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

Quotes & Highlights
“It’s a really beautiful little jewel of a piece that’s entertaining in the comedy and taps into our sense of humanity.” —Examiner.com
Written by Allison Moore
Directed by Jessica Heidt
Hannah is trying desperately to hold the façade of her perfect life together, even as her husband mysteriously calls in sick to work day after day, they struggle with infertility, and Hannah herself is on the verge of being laid off. When Hannah’s sister appears on their doorstep, she brings with her a feisty, renegade attitude and an illicit package that sends the family on an odyssey into some of the quirkier corners of Minneapolis, and into the heart of their deepest fears. Jessica Heidt directs this comedy about surviving and transcending, inspired by the 2007 collapse of the Mississippi River Bridge in Minneapolis.
