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

We thoroughly enjoyed the evening of 4 short one-act plays. There were touching and humorous sections in each phase of life. The final play was the most thought provoking, with skillful movement of each passage of time in the life of this extended family at Christmas dinner. Very clever and thoughtful.
