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

In this Off-Broadway hit play with music that Entertainment Weekly hailed as one of the 10 best plays of last season, three teenage misfits in Salem, Oregon discover they are curiously connected by a sex scandal that’s rocked their hometown. When the trio, under the guise of a speech and debate team, form an unlikely alliance to seek out and disclose the truth, secrets become currency, stakes escalate, and their connection grows deeper in their quest for the trifecta of fame, free speech and the perfect Broadway musical number.
