Southwest Shakespeare Company welcomes author David Davalos to the opening weekend of WITTENBERG

                             Author David Davalos david davalos 2
                              OPENING WEEKEND


It is October 1517 and author David Davalos centers his brilliant theatrical construction on an unlikely convergence of Hamlet, John Faustus, and Martin Luther being present at Wittenberg University at the same time. Hamlet is a tentative undergrad bouncing between the diametrically opposed philosophies of Faustus and Luther. The two older men end up battling for their star pupil’s soul as external circumstances threaten their stability and even their lives.
Wittenberg opens on February 26 at 7:30pm
and runs until March 12, 2016
at the Mesa Arts Center. TICKETS at
