About this show

Meet Volpone, the rich old Magnifico, whose ingenious schemes and farcical scams dupe his wealthy friends into showering him with gold. This Jacobean juggler robs the rich to feed the richer. Considered one of the greatest comedies ever written for the stage, Jonson's merciless satire of greed and lust delightfully skewers the vanities and hypocrisies of humanity with irreverent comic relish. A feast of extraordinary language and outrageous characters await you in this timeless and timely classic from the pen of Shakespeare's greatest peer.
