Meet Volpone, a rich old man who wants to become richer still. With the aid of his servant Mosca he sets out to deceive the nobility of Venice, convincing them he is on his deathbed, which prompts them to shower him with gifts in the hope of becoming his sole heir. Buoyed by success the pair persuade the merchant Corvino to offer his beautiful wife to bring Volpone back to health. Meanwhile three English tourists become entangled in the tricksters’ increasingly convoluted schemes in this Jacobean farce. Will the sly fox Volpone face comeuppance for his greed?
