This adaptation shortened and simplified the original, and combined a pacey plot and rich humour with a hysterical portrait of our acquisitive society.

Volpone and Mosca were two double-dealing and despicable rogues set out to fleece the notables of Venice. As Volpone appeared on his death bed, there was a queue at his door of those keen to ingratiate themselves and inherit his wealth. Mosca piled high the rich gifts, and bribery, lust and corruption that followed.
