by Ben Jonson
The Alchemist is Ben Jonson’s brilliant satire on greed and hypocrisy. Samuel Coleridge calls this boisterous and fast-moving comedy by Shakespeare’s great competitor one of the three best plots ever written. The story of what happens when two inventive and shameless con men and their scintillating companion, Dol Common, go to work on the citizens of London is crammed with unforgettable characters and outrageous situations.
