Peterborough Players presents:

A Comedy by David Davalos

August 30-September 10

University of Wittenberg, October 1517. Hamlet, his mentor John Faustus, and Faustus’ colleague and Hamlet’s instructor and priest, Martin Luther, all collide in a brilliant theatrical construction by playwright David Davalos. A smart, sprightly, and audacious battle of wits, the play brings us the story behind the stories in a highly entertaining and accessible exploration of reason versus faith.

“Bursts with a Stoppardian eagerness to tickle as it tangles with weightier issues…
​Hilarity, thy name is WITTENBERG." —New York Times.

Reviews - Wittenberg

Jeremy Beck’s Hamlet is all elemental undergraduate. 
He comes across so delightfully callow, eager to learn, and uncertain regarding where and how and what to learn, that we know he belongs at the university
Mixon and Beck are both new to the Peterborough Players. I hope we see more of them in productions and seasons to come.
