To tickle the humor of today's audiences, Ben Jonson’s Volpone has been moved from 17th century Venice to turn of the century San Francisco. Volpone is now Foxwell J. Sly and he is the same scheming, rapacious miser bent on extracting fortunes from a trio of rich, greedy opportunists. Sly, pretending to be on his death bed, says he will name each of the three as his sole heir. The extent that the trio will go to acquire Sly's fortune knows no bounds.

"Pure comedy based on pure greed. It is full of pure laughs." - NBC
