Hub Theatre Company of Boston will launch its highly anticipated season of "somewhat-Shakespeare" with "Wittenberg," a witty and withering piece of historic fan fiction by award-winning playwright David Davalos.
"A priest, a prince and a philosopher walk into a bar…."
…This is not the start of a joke; rather, it is the premise for "Wittenberg," the wickedly contentious and wildly comedic play about fate, faith and free will.
What happens when you have a character who is willing to make a deal with the Devil, the man who sparked the Protestant Reformation, and an impressionable young prince suffering from indecisiveness in the same place at the same time?
You get a tragical-comical-historical prequel to Hamlet, Doctor Faustus and the Protestant Reformation!
This provocative exploration of history and humanity will appeal to anyone looking for big laughs and the answers to life’s big questions.
Local favorite Daniel Bourque directs four of Boston’s funniest actors: Robert Orzalli (East Boston), Kevin Paquette (Charlestown), Alex P Roy (Somerville), and Regine Vital
All performances are “Pay-What-You-Can.” Donations of school supplies will be collected at each performance for local charities.
