A Double Pint of Pinter: The Lover & Mountain Language
Written by Harold Pinter.
Directed by Kolya Schweppe.
The playwright of tonight's two plays, Harold Pinter, turned 70 this year. Certainly reason enough to pay him tribute by performing two of his contrasting plays, the first of which, The Lover, was originally performed in the 60's and Mountain Language in 1989. The Lover is more typical of the bulk of Pinter's work and especially of his earlier plays. The harsh portrayal of oppression in Mountain Language provides a stark contrast to The Lover. Pinter wrote Mountain Language as a response to reports from human rights organizations on the oppression of minorities and their indigenous language rights. It is designed to create a feeling of compassion for oppressed peoples so that the audience may be moved and inspired to act on their behalf, for example, by supporting Amnesty International and other human rights organizations.

Written by Machiavelli.
Directed by Paul Rathbun.
Arguably one of Machiavelli's finest works, Mandragola is a comedy that offers
an in-depth look into the world of Machiavelli. The play's action takes place in
the span of 24 hrs. It is the story of Callimaco, a young Florentine who lived
in Paris for 20 years. One day he overheard a fellow Florentine tell the
Parisians about a woman of extraordinary beauty back in Tuscany. Compelled to
see her for himself, Callimaco returned to his native land. Once he saw her
beauty he was determined to have her. There are several problems to his plan
however. The first is that the woman, Lucrezia, is married and the second that
her virtue seems above reproach. Callimaco enlisted the help of Ligurio, a
rascally marriage broker who had had dealings with Lucrezia and her husband,
Nicia. Using his skills at arranging things, Ligurio devises plans to allow
Callimaco to have his moment of bliss with Lucrezia. (emachiavelli.com)
