Machiavelli's The Mandrake
A romantic comedy by the guy who wrote the book on how to be a bloody-thirsty despot...
Physical comedy, Renaissance garb, and Machiavellian mischief abound as a young scholar returns to Florence in search of a legendary beauty. The only problem is that she is married to a dithering old judge who wants desperately to father a child. With the help of a crooked friar, a shameless mother-in-law, some bumbling servants, and a self-serving conman, a web of grotesque manipulations results in everyone getting exactly what they want! As Machiavelli famously argued in his political treatise The Prince, "The ends justify the means."
The Mandrake, opening in September of 2011, will be our inaugural performance at Gallaudet University Eastman Studio Theatre Elstad Annex.
ASL Interpreted on Fri, Sep 23 and Sat, Sep 24 at 8pm. (Other select dates to be announced soon.)
