Playing Up returns to the 17th century at The Rondo in Bath
Playing Up Theatre Company has built a strong local following delivering powerful and challenging theatre.
For nine years it has produced the work of playwrights including Samuel Beckett, Arthur Miller, Edward Albee and Dario Fo. Following a successful production of Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustus in 2010, the company revisits the 17th century for its spring show at The Rondo, Bath.
Ben Jonson was a contemporary of Shakespeare but specialised in extravagant courtly masques which he composed with Inigo Jones.
He also wrote popular moral comedies such as The Alchemist, Bartholomew Fair and, perhaps the funniest of the three, Volpone or The Fox. The plot revolves around the greedy Volpone and his servant Mosca.

These two confidence tricksters set about fleecing a trio of rich Venetians by pretending that Volpone is dying.
They in turn heap jewels and presents on the sly fox Volpone in the desperate hope that one of them will inherit his fortune when he dies; something Volpone has no intention of doing.
The gullible merchant Corvino is even persuaded by Mosca to offer his own wife as a bribe!
Using a wardrobe of disguises and some wonderfully clever 'patter' Volpone and Mosca revel in their ill-gotten gains.
Will they get away with their scam or will justice finally catch up with them?
Volpone is being performed from Wednesday, February 20 to Saturday, February 23 at The Rondo Theatre in Larkhall, Bath. Performances start at 7.30pm and tickets are available on 01225 463362.
