About

Fresh Life Theatre is revving-up classical theatre in this brash, irreverent and bombastic tragicomedy.

Meet Volpone, the sly fox, as he charms and cheats his way to a fortune. Based on Ben Johnson’s 1605 tragicomedy, our production adds punchy new writing, a raw contemporary context and a certain musical swagger. We’re giving this eccentric host of characters the crazy, adrenaline fuelled performance they deserve. 

Fresh Life Theatre is about reimagining how people view classical texts with exhilarating, audacious and inventive performances. Our aim in to make the classics accessible for new audiences. Gone are the tights and ruffles as we revamp the undercurrents of raw passion lurking in classical theatre.

Risks and challenges

The largest challenge we face is funding. Our budget is modest but we are a very young theatre company. We need backing for Volpone, our debut production, to establish our reputation to fund future productions.
