“Ben Jonson’s original script. But in the 1980s porn industry. ”

Heck Collective

SUMMARY

He was, once upon a time, the greatest porn star in the world. But the glory years of Volporne Productions are fading, and now Volpone entertains himself by taunting his three avaricious successors with feigned terminal illness, dangling his vast fortune as bait for his sport.

But who will go the furthest to get what they want?

Voltore, the fierce, formidable female?

Corbaccio, Volpone’s oldest and eldest rival?

Corvino, the suffocatingly virile upstart?

The tangle of lies, deceit and remorseless treachery that follows is one of the greatest examinations of human greed ever written. It celebrates and condemns our animal nature and our insatiable appetites in a razor-sharp script that is at once hilarious, dark and provocative.

Admission: £9(£7)
