Volpone is a comedy by Ben Jonson first produced in 1606, drawing on elements of city comedy and beast fable. A merciless satire of greed and lust, it remains Jonson's most-performed play, and it is among the finest Jacobean Era comedies. Volpone is a Venetian gentleman who pretends to be on his deathbed, after a long illness, in order to dupe Voltore, Corbaccio, and Corvino, three men who aspire to inherit his fortune. In their turns, each man arrives to Volpone’s house bearing a luxurious gift, intent upon having his name inscribed to the will of Volpone, as his heir. Mosca, Volpone’s parasite servant, encourages each man, Voltore, Corbaccio, and Corvino, to believe that he has been named heir to Volpone’s fortune; in the course of which, Mosca persuades Corbaccio to disinherit his own son in favour of Volpone. - Summary by Wikipedia Cast list: Volpone, a magnifico: Zachary Brewster-Geisz Mosca, his parasite: Elizabeth Klett Voltore, an advocate: Peter Tucker Corbaccio, an old gentleman: alanmapstone Corvino, a merchant: Beth Thomas Bonario, son to Corbaccio: ToddHW Sir Politick Would-Be, a knight: ToddHW Peregrine, a gentleman traveler: inflected Nano, a dwarf: mb Castrone, an eunuch / Fourth Avocatore: bala Androgyno, an hermaphrodite / Notario, the register: Libby Gohn Lady Would-Be, Sir Politick's wife: Frances Brown Celia, Corvino's wife: Sarah Terry First Waiting-Woman / Servant: Availle First Avocatore / First Merchant: Mary Kay Second Avocatore / Second Merchant: Mary J Third Avocatore / Third Merchant: Elizabeth Klett Narrator: Elizabeth Klett Edited By: ToddHW and : Elizabeth Klett Coordinated By: Elizabeth Klett
