Honour? There’s no such thing

Volponé
by Ben Jonson

The classic satire of cunning and greed

Volpone is rich – filthy rich, but for him the glory of accumulating wealth is more thrilling than its simple possession. In lust for more, he and his assistant, the rascal Mosca, swindle three of the wealthiest men in the city, each believing they are his sole heir. Daring trickery and avarice ensues in this bitingly fresh version of Ben Johnson’s comedy.

Inspired by Southern African Township Theatre, a multi-skilled ensemble of three actors perform to an enticing musical backdrop of jazz-fusion, delivered with Tangle’s trademark dynamism.

Age: Suggested minimum 13+

It’s testament to how expertly this version has been considered that it seems obvious that you’d only do Doctor Faustus with three performers. That’s all you need!
