The Mandrake

Date: 16th-19th February 2022

Location: Theatre

Synopsis: Buckle up for an evening of laughter, intrigue, deceit and debauchery with a Penrith Players’ world premier.

Callum is a master of persuasion. He says he can sell anything to anyone — even a pair of jeans to Jacob Rees-Mogg. But the thing he really wants is to bed Lucy, a girl he had a big schoolboy crush on. Trouble is she’s now married.
On hearing there’s trouble in paradise, as both Lucy and her husband are desperate to have children, but have had no luck in conceiving, Callum hatches a cunning plan.

The Mandrake by Niccolò Machiavelli adapted by Kevan France, directed by Andy Keogh.
