    Lent Week 4

    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.

    Like previous years, this sixth annual show is a collaboration between the Cambridge University Italian Society, the Cambridge International Theatre Festival and professional director Ludovico Nolfi.

    Italian language - with English captions.

    THERE ARE circa 50 TICKET a performance. The show is free but in order to support the young actors and help the Society to put on more shows in the future we kindly ask audience members to make a small optional donation - SEE EVENT PAGE FOR TICKETS or email
