2019 – La Mandragola


2019 – La Mandragola (The Mandrake)

by Niccolo Machiavelli


This year the annual Cambridge Italian play brings to the stage a masterpiece of Renaissance comedy – The Mandrake (La Mandragola) by Niccolò Machiavelli!

A story of young love, disguises and magic potions, The Mandrake remains a thoroughly modern tale- showing how easily fraud can prevail over all morals and how we all pursue happiness at the expense of others.
