Volpone, the classic comedy from the pen of Ben Jonson, has been moved from 17th century Venice to the Wild West, complete with tough judges and saloon girls. Volpone is now Foxwell J. Sly, and is up to similar tricks…stealing from three greedy rich opportunists to become richer himself. “Sly, pretending to be on his death bed, says he will name each of the three as his sole heir. The extent that the trio will go to acquire Sly's fortune knows no bounds. One goes so far as to disinherit his only son; another offers up his wife to the lecherous Sly. Sly is aided and abetted by his conniving servant in grabbing the other men's gold.” “Truly funny and exhilarating ... brings real comedy back to the theatre.... There's nothing like pure fun.” N.Y.
