A New Version Of Ben Jonson's Classic Comedy.

Tue 9 Feb 2016 to Sat 20 Feb 2016


Produced by CandleFire Theatre

Hosted by The Cockpit

Is money the root of all evil?...To Volpone and his faithful servant Mosca it is simply what makes the world go round. And they will do anything to acquire it.
With tricks, deception and disguise the pair manipulate a gullible roster of greedy scavengers who have come to prey on the wealthy Volpone's inheritance.

Little do they know that, rather than Volpone being old, sick and about to snuff it (as they have been led to believe), he and Mosca are in fact twisting their strings and playing out a grand ruse for their own gain and amusement.

But how long can the con last? And what happens when the tables are turned against the master of the game?


After their 5* Romeo & Juliet, CandleFire come to The Cockpit for the first time with a brand new edit of a classic text.

Directed by Jaclyn Bradley and Adapted by Joshua Jewkes, CandleFire bring together their energetic style and unique presentation to Ben Jonson's comedic farce.
