The fall semester at Wittenberg U finds Hamlet Prince of Denmark class of
1517 with an undeclared major. His philosophy professor Dr. John Faustus
has finally decided to marry his paramour, a former nun turned courtesan,
and his theology professor Martin Luther is dealing with the spiritual and
medical consequences of his outrage at abusive practices of the Church.
Hysterically funny and poignantly touching the play takes the fictional characters
of Christopher Marlowe’s Faustus and Shakespeare’s Hamlet and throws
them together with the renaissance religious reformer Martin Luther and
places the three of them on the campus of Wittenberg U to hash out their
theories about the mysteries of the universe, existence, women, love and God.

This exciting play reveals the man beneath the cowl. Here, then is Luther the
man, monk and mind in all its doubts, honesty and clarity of purpose lifting his
book in his hand and saying, “Here I stand.”
