$10 GENERAL ADMISSION
The Mandrake Root (La Mandragola)
by Niccolo’ Macchiavelli
Directed by Laura Caparrotti
Featuring the YoungKIT: Ilaria Ambrogi, Francesco Andolfi, Giulia Bisinella, Carlotta Brentan, Francesco Meola, Irene Turri.
The Mandrake Root is a satirical play by the author of The Prince, Niccolò Machiavelli. Although the five-act comedy was published in 1524 and first performed in the carnival season of 1526, Machiavelli likely wrote The Mandrake Root in 1518 to be performed at the wedding of Duke Lorenzo de’ Medici and Maddalena de la Tour d’Auvregne. KIT is reviving this seldom-produced play with its young division, the YoungKIT. The production will feature only 6 actors, a handful of props and a few costumes, and Macchiavelli’s masterpiece translated into English while retaining some elements of the original version.
With The Mandrake Root, KIT inaugurates a series of shows focused on highlighting the great tradition of Italian theater, re-interpreted by a younger generation, the YoungKIT.
