Shakespeare salon comes to Vermont Coffee Company theater
Join the actors of Vermont Shakespeare Festival for a concert-style reading of “Wittenberg” by David Davalos on Sunday, March 11, at 3 p.m. The reading is part of the group’s 2018 Salon Series — where they have been branching out from their headquarters in Burlington to bring Shakespeare around Vermont. This Sunday, Vermont Shakespeare Festival will read at The Vermont Coffee Company on Exchange Street in Middlebury
About the play: It’s October 1517 at Wittenberg University in northern Germany. The characters of Hamlet, his mentor John Faustus, and Faustus’ colleague and Hamlet’s instructor and priest, Martin Luther, all collide in a brilliant theatrical construction by David Davalos. How these three men’s sagas overlap and intertwine and how they end up irrevocably affecting the course of each other’s lives is the substance of “Wittenberg,” a comedy that reveals the story behind the stories of Hamlet, Doctor Faustus and the Protestant Reformation.
The reading will last approximately two hours with a 15-minute intermission. Refreshments available. A discussion will follow the reading. $10 suggested donation. For more info visit vermontshakespeare.org.
