Volpone The classic satire of cunning and greed from African Caribbean theatre company Tangle. _“Honour? There’s no such thing.”_ Volpone is rich – filthy rich. For him the glory of accumulating wealth is more thrilling than its simple possession. In lust for more he and his assistant, the rascal Mosca, swindle three of the wealthiest men in the city, each believing they are his sole heir. Daring, trickery and avarice ensues in this bitingly fresh version of Ben Jonson’s comedy. Inspired by Southern African Township Theatre, a multi-skilled ensemble of just 3 actors perform to an enticing backdrop of new and vintage jazz, delivered with Tangle’s trademark dynamism. ]]>
