Written by Ben Jonson in 1610, The Alchemist is arguably the celebrated playwright’s most popular and enduring work.
It’s a blistering summer in London and a corrupt servant has lent his master’s empty house to a con artist and a prostitute. Together, they lure the gullible and the rich into ludicrous schemes to empty their purses.
But what happens when one of the marks gets wise to them?
And who will walk away with the money?
Bard & Troubadour bring Ben Jonson’s classic comedy to the stage in a bold and bawdy re-imagining for the modern age.
