“That Alchemy is a pretty kind of game … to cheat a man with charming.”

Considered Jonson’s best comedy, The Alchemist follows the antics of three con-artists: Subtle, Face and Dol. When the gentleman Lovewit flees England to avoid the Plague, the trio set up headquarters in his home and set about exposing the social ills of their fellow Londoners. Michael Kahn directs his third Jonson play, following the success of Volpone, which The Washington Post described as “a belly laugh at human greed,” and The Silent Woman, which NPR called “brilliant … a ferocious farce.”
