Electric Theatre, Guildford

Pranksters Theatre Company presented Ben Jonson’s “Volpone” at the Electric Theatre. A satirical comedy on the lust for money and the affect of greed. A contemporary of Shakespeare; Volpone is Jonson's most performed play.

Volpone is a rich man. He is rich beyond most people's wildest dreams and from his death-bed he hungers for more. With the whiff of a dying man's wealth, the local circle of 'Vultures' and 'Crows' will stop at nothing for a sniff. But wait, who is deceiving who? Is it Volpone or his scavengers?
