VOLPONE by Ben Jonson
Performed by Tangle Theatre
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 Jonson’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.
