Department:Theatre Arts
Performance from 8pm-10pm.  Although written in the sixteenth century, "The Mandrake’s" satire about sex, power, gender, and deceit is hilariously modern. In it, Machiavelli artfully confuses the boundaries of what most consider to be opposites: good and bad, virtue and vice, man and woman. 
 
The Department of Theatre Arts will present Wallace Shawn’s translation of Machiavelli’s comic critique November 14–17. Roger Babb directs the play, which is performed more than any other from the Italian Renaissance because it continues to provoke laughter and because its subject matter is controversial and contemporary.
 
Box Office: 413- 538-2406 or rookeboxoffice@gmail.com. Tickets $5 general/$3 students & senior citizens. Voicemail reservations accepted beginning November l. Please speak clearly, spelling your name name and leave a phone number as all reservations are confirmed.
