Setting: the historic campus of Wittenberg
Setting: the historic campus of Wittenberg University in the year 1517. The University of Wittenberg was founded in 1502 by Frederick the Wise. It was the scholarly home of Martin Luther and the birthplace of his ideas leading to the Protestant Reformation, the alma mater of Shakespeare’s Prince Hamlet, and the location where Christopher Marlowe’s Doctor Faustus made his fatal deal to sell his soul to the devil for power and knowledge.
On this most extravagant and lusty exchange program you get to meet famous people! Including:
The inscrutable Dr. JOHN FAUSTUS, M.D., J.D., Ph.D., Th.D.;
HAMLET, Prince of Denmark, when he was a senior, major undecided (he’s a prince!);
The Rev. Fr. MARTIN LUTHER, D.D., a professor and a confessor; The ETERNAL FEMININE including GAIA, the goddess Mother Earth, and MARY, the Mother of God.
You may even get the chance to cuddle up an honest-to-badness 16th century lady of pleasure. How much would you pay for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity? Wait! Don’t answer yet!!
If you order your tickets now you’ll also receive complimentary passes to witness the famous tennis match between Hamlet and Laertes that set in motion a dastardly plot of revenge! And in case that doesn’t float your boat, you can always relax at the local tavern, The Bunghole, where many classes at the University end up anyways. You can whet your whistle with a Wittenberg Abby Ale and try your hand at darts, German-style. CAN YOU BELIEVE YOU CAN GET ALL THIS FOR 25% OFF REGULAR EXCHANGE PROGRAM TICKET PRICES?!?!
YES! YOU CAN!!
If you get a group of 10 or more colleagues, employees or friends to come together to Perseverance Theatre’s new comedy, WITTENBERG, running from January 9th to February 1st at 7:30pm, you can get this invaluable reduction in your tickets to a grand evening out.
