‘The Mandrake’ by Niccolò Machiavelli
Heritage Theatre Group is proud to announce our new educational series, beginning with a staged reading of Niccolò Machiavelli’s ‘The Mandrake!’ Featuring many familiar HTG faces, ‘The Mandrake’ is the story of Callimaco and his schemes to win the lovely, married, Lucrezia. This play does contain adult themes so may not be suitable for young audiences.
Note: Staged readings are not fully realized productions and the actors will be holding their scripts, but don’t worry – that will not take away from the enjoyment of the show!
