WITTENBERG, by David Davalos
Produced by special arrangement
with Dramatists Play Service, New York.
Set in 1517 at the University of Wittenberg and in the German town of it’s namesake, this highly irreverent “tragical-comical-historical in two acts” explores how three men’s sagas overlap, intertwine, and irrevocably affect the course of each other’s lives. Will Hamlet get his tennis chops back and finally declare a major? Can Dr. Faustus distill the perfect medicine for philosophical angst and win the love of his beautiful Helen? Can the Rev. Fr. Martin Luther defeat the Devil in his privy and reconcile his feelings for the Church? And driving it all, what really is the nature of the Eternal Feminine? Find out (*we can’t guarantee that you will) in this outrageously nerdy romp through literature, philosophy, and religion… A play that, like life, swings from deeply serious to farcically absurd at the drop of a hat.
Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, Sundays at 4pm.
There is no performance Sunday April 29th.
Starring: Phillip E. McKaughan, Grant Dagg, Will Nicolai, Missy Schaapman, Sarah Bialobroda, and Aamod Samuel.
All performances at the ANTELOPE VALLEY WINERY on 20th St. W. at Avenue M in Lancaster, CA. Arrive early for wine tasting!
