VOLPONE at The Swan

August 4, 2015

Henry Goodman directed by Trevor Nunn in Ben Johnson’s play VOLPONE at the Swan RSC is unmissable. I took a Dutch teenager to the play and he was laughing out loud with me at the antics in this wonderful story poking fun at the rich and the greedy. Every single aspect of this production is inspired and I felt like I was watching a brand new play on opening night. The atmosphere was electric. Mathew Kelly was particularly hilarious as Corvino and Orion Lee as Mosca was a complete Master of his art. Wonderful production.
