Abergavenny’s Suitcase Theatre Company presents a zany, 1960s version of Ben Jonson’s classic comedy, The Alchemist. When a pandemic strikes London, upper-class twit Fabien Lovewit flees the city, leaving his Blackfriars town house in the care of his butler, Jeremy. Immediately, Jeremy changes his identity to Captain Face, and invites two notorious con-artists – Doll and Subtle – to join him in a hilarious campaign to fleece a series of local nitwits: Dapper (who wants to become a high-rolling gambler), Drugger (who wants to open a spanking new mini-market), Sir Epicure Mammon (whose lust for food, drink and loose women knows no bounds), as well as a pair of naughty nuns and a high class lady with a rich niece in tow. The result is sheer mayhem. All of the action and all of the laughs are played out to a soundtrack of the best music from the 1960s. Come along in your psychedelic shirts and tight jeans, with flowers in your hair, to enjoy the full experience!
