This tragic masterpiece by English playwright Ben Jonson explores the life of Roman soldier Lucius Aelius Seianus, who was a close friend and confidant of the emperor TIberius. After a public performance of the play at the Globe theater, Jonson was accused of treason, as some believed the play to be a commentary on political events in England.
In this uproarious satire from Jacobean playwright Ben Jonson, the clever Venetian gentleman Volpone hatches an outrageous scheme to dupe a greedy trio of hangers-on who are after his fortune. A ragtag cast of characters, including a dwarf, a eunuch, and a hermaphrodite, get caught up in the plot along the way.
