FAKE NEWS

Presented by BA Theatre and Drama Studies 3rd year ensemble

"A potpourri of blackmail, skulduggery, blatant corruption, not so blatant corruption, bribery, hush money, secrets and lies.”

In this new comic version of Volpone, Ben Jonson’s blistering Venetian satire of greed, fraud and conspicuous consumption, nothing is as it seems. Everything glitters in this world of ostentatious wealth, political glamour and shameless corruption, but under the glitzy surface of the ‘very sunny place surrounded by water’ where the action unfolds, dark ambitions and universal deceit trap all the characters in a relentless and deadly game of bluff and counter-bluff that inevitably ends in tears.

FAKE NEWS is set in a world where farce and facts are interchangeable. It's light entertainment with a sting in its tale.
