The annual Cambridge Italian play presents 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.
