‘Mandrake’ nears end: Final shows April 23-26

By SHANA ROSE

Performances of “The Mandrake” continue through April 26 at Pima Community College’s Black Box Theatre.

Show times are at 7:30 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and at 2 p.m. on Sunday. American Sign Language interpreters will be available on April 23. The Black Box Theatre is part of the West Campus Center for the Arts complex.

“The Mandrake,” directed by Deborah Davis, uses Machiavelli’s philosophy of “the ends justify the means” to spotlight the exploits of lovers, liars and fools.

The satirical comedy about love and lust portrays an upper class man who becomes infatuated with a virtuous woman. The fact that she is already married doesn’t stop him.

The plot line also involves a husband and wife who are hoping to bear a child, a manipulative servant, a scheming mother, a corrupt priest and an aphrodisiacal plant.

Tickets cost $15, with discounts available. For additional information, call the box office at 206-6986.
