Presented by Bath Drama Written by Ben Jonson

Some things never change, con artists and corrupt politicians are just some of them! Ben Jonson’s classic farce gets the Victorian treatment in this absurd comedy. In 1890s London, three schemers intend to cheat the wealthy and greedy with a con involving alchemy and the Philosopher's Stone. As their schemes and mockery of their marks become more absurd, will their deceit get found out, or can Face, Subtle and Doll steal from the rich and give to… themselves? Featuring a talented cast of comedic wit and skill, you're sure to be laughing along with them!
