To open our Ben Jonson First Folio Quadricentennial Season, Resurgens Theatre Company returns to Atlanta this spring with one of the most popular English comedies ever performed—The Alchemist. Join us for the satirical exploits of the “venture tripartite” (criminally composed of a butler, a conjurer, and a prostitute), as they humorously scam gullible customers greedy for the power and riches of the philosophers’ stone. Directed by Dr. Brent Griffin, this “original practices” production heartily embraces Jonson’s verbal energy and poetic virtuosity, demonstrating why Coleridge deemed this play one of the three best plots in all literature.
