Volpone has long been a popular choice as a set text for students. Volpone, a rich libertine and conman, and Mosca, his self-seeking servant, cause chaos with an audacious fraud designed to part the city’s wealthiest from their fortunes. One of the finest of Jacobean comedies, this brilliantly staged production is a merciless satire of greed and lust.

“a delicious double act, Bremmer (Volpone) snuffling with mirth into his ginger furs as Hadfield’s Mosca makes boobies of the avaricious hypocrites with easy wit.” The Times
