Volpone or The Fox (Prologue) - What's Past Is Prologue

A performance of the prologue to Volpone (1606) by Ben Jonson - recorded to frustrate everyone who wants to hear a full production, and as a sitting accusation to the world for not (necessarily) supplying one. That said, for once there is a version available online - you can get it here https://www.stageonscreen.com/volpone.php or you can access it here https://www.dramaonlinelibrary.com/plays/volpone-iid-140870 , if you're so connected. If you'd like to make us to do a full audio production of this play, join us on patreon and choose this play at the next vote. www.patreon.com/beyondshakespeare   

Prologue performed by Sarah Golding, produced by Robert Crighton.

The play is in print and available variously online - an example of the text can be found here - http://www.hollowaypages.com/jonson1692volpone.htm
