The International Arts Centre, Zagreb presents a hilarious renaissance comedy “Master Maroje, Abridged”, a story of love and faithfulness, jealousy and greed, lust and money.
Master Maroje gives his son five thousand ducats and sends him off to Florence to buy fabrics. But his son Maro is a young man, and he goes to Rome where he spends all the money on women and fine clothes. After three years his father comes to Rome looking for him and trying to salvage some of the money. Of course, things don’t go as planned…
Come see why you should never give lots of money to a young man, your son for example, ‘cause young men are green and follow the flies…..
Spend an evening in a relaxed atmosphere, at the highest point in Zagreb, with a glass of wine while you are being entertained by our fine actors, “The Pomet Company”.
