The childless, rich trickster of the title feigns sickness to witness the groveling and sycophantic shenanigans of his court in search of his will. Unbeknownst to them, Volpone is still a scheming rapacious miser bent on extracting fortunes from the greedy opportunists. The extent to which people will go to acquire Volpone's fortune knows no bounds: one disinherits his only son; another offers his wife to the lecherous man.

This is truly a fun and exhilarating script, requiring a spirited ensemble. Johnson's farce is adapted for one-act competition by the authors of The Beggar's Opera, The Merry Wives of Winsor, Tartuffe and more.
