VolponeStreaming Video - 2013
This classic play is aimed at the student, teacher, lecturer and theater lover alike and uses professional actors and directors at London's award-winning Greenwich Theatre, which specializes in productions for young people. "Volpone" is billed as a comedy by Ben Jonson, but it also includes elements of tragedy and even animal fable. In essence, it's a dark satire on greed and lust, and remains Jonson's most performed work. The action takes place in 17th-century Venice, over the course of one day. The tale twists and turns, as all the characters attempt to deceive each other, until the whole scheme finally collapses, with disastrous consequences for Volpone.
