Book The Alchemist Theatre Breaks in Stratford upon Avon
Considered by many to be Ben Jonson’s best and most characteristic comedy, The Alchemist revels in just how vain we humans can be.
A contemporary of Shakespeare, Jonson’s witty play The Alchemist sees a deceitful butler, Jeremy, entrusted with this master’s household when the plague hits London. With an eye for making money by any means, Jeremy, with the aid of two equally unscrupulous cohorts, set about making the dwelling a hive of criminal activity. All is going well for the trio until, that is, the master makes his return.
Polly Findlay (The Merchant of Venice 2015) directs.
