The Mandrake (1517) is a very funny play about sex, power, gender and deceit.  It is performed more than any other play of the Italian Renaissance because it continues to provoke laughter and because of its controversial and contemporary subject matter. Machiavelli artfully confuses the boundaries of what we consider to be oppositions: good and bad, virtue and vice, man and woman.  Many refer to Machiavelli as evil and wicked and others argue that he is a pragmatist who describes the world as it is, not as it should be. Spectators are invited to consider various interpretations as they are being entertained by Shawn’s 1977 translation.
