About the Show Less...

Ben Jonson's Jacobean comedy. Read More >

Volpone craves money. He yearns for power. He longs for flesh. Can his voracious appetite ever be satisfied?

In 17th century Venice, that hot bed of corruption and decadence, Ben Jonson creates a story of disguise and deception with parasitic characters whose hunger leads to their spiritial and financial downfall.

A merciless satire of greed and lust, Volpone remains frighteningly relevant today.

Produced in-house by Greenwich theatre
