“Shakespeare meets The Godfather”

Italy, 1502. Duke Valentino must face the sins of his past in order to protect his family. Brilliant and ambitious, Valentino wages a war to reclaim the Papal States for Rome, but he is haunted by the memory of murdering his brother. His beloved sister, Lucrezia Borgia, may already be plotting his destruction. Now his mercenary captains have formed a conspiracy against him. Valentino’s only hope for survival lies with two Florentine men of genius: Leonardo da Vinci and Niccolò Machiavelli.

Written and directed by David Wisehart.

“It’s a lot of fun. It’s actually brilliant. I advise all you listeners to run out and see it!” — Paul Strickland, “Thursday Matinee” KHTS AM 1220
