Cambridge University Italian Society presents...
Non ti Pago!
By Eduardo De Filippo
7:00pm, Sun 19th March 2017 at Murray Edwards College
Lent Week 9
A man lost between dream and reality, Don Ferdinando, owner of a lottery shop, is a dedicated but unlucky gambler. When Mario, Ferdinando’s hated prospective brother-in-law, wins a big sum after dreaming Ferdinando’s deceased father, Ferdinando seizes the winning ticket and refuses to recognise Mario as the legitimate owner. An absurd and comic dispute follows, whereby dreams and magic collide with law and religion in what Eduardo de Filippo himself described as “a very comic comedy, according to me the most tragic I’ve ever written”.
For the fourth year running the CU Italian Society, working with director Ludovico Nolfi, is happy to present the Cambridge Italian Play.
