Alex Jennings, Simon Russell Beale, Lesley Manville and Ian Richardson star in Jonson’s cunning critique of human greed and gullibility.

Subtle, Face and Doll Common pretend to be alchemists, fooling their unwitting clientele into parting with their money. As they attract more clients, the conspirators have to go to greater lengths to escape discovery.

Part of the Travelex £10 season: two thirds of the seats available for each performance cost only £10.
