"In all his poems still hath been this measure, To mix profit with your pleasure..." Prologue, Volpone

The Shakespeare Theatre presents Ben Jonson's comic masterpiece Volpone to close Michael Kahn's celebratory 10th anniversary season.

In this hilarious satire of greed, trickery, and hypocrisy, Volpone, with the help of his servant Mosca, feigns mortal illness in order to trick a group of would-be-heirs who are willing to do anything to inherit his gold. Volpone wheedles more and more riches out of these greedy well-wishers, who give up their dignity, their morals, and even their loved ones, to win his favor. In the end everyone gets his due. The greedy schemers are punished and the innocent vindicated.

Shakespeare Theatre Artistic Director Michael Kahn directs three-time Helen Hayes Award-winner Pat Carroll as she turns the tables on another classic role for men as Volpone.
