Volpone
by Martin Foreman


He's dying to get rich


With the aid of his servant Mosca, Volpone convinces the wealthy citizens of Venice that he is on his deathbed, prompting them to shower him with gifts in order to become his sole heir. Buoyed by success, the pair persuade merchant Corvino to offer his beautiful wife to bring Volpone back to health. Meanwhile, three English tourists get involved in the tricksters' increasingly convoluted schemes. How will it all end?

The rollicking Jacobean comedy loses none of its humour in this new version by Martin Foreman. With setting and language updated to the nineteenth century and key characters Mosca and Corbaccia now women, the play is bound to win over new audiences. The text is being published for the world premiere at this year's Edinburgh Festival Fringe, produced by the long-standing theatre group EGTG.
