The Alchemist
Nothing Special Productions presents THE ALCHEMIST by Ben Jonson. Step into the Alchemist's parlor, where anything can be had: endless riches, beautiful women, guaranteed success, the destruction of your enemies, even blessings from the Queen of Fairy. First it will cost you what is on your person, then everything you own, and finally, your dignity.

In Ben Jonson's startlingly modern masterpiece of misanthropy, three drifters  a fake captain, a prostitute, and an alchemist (recently peeled off the street) work overtime to offer greedy and credulous marks their wildest dreams, and then some (for a price, of course) and get out of town with the loot before it all comes crashing down. Their schemes and double-crosses pile up, twist together, and collapse on themselves, as imaginary potions really explode, imaginary long-lost relations are reunited for the first time, an imaginary noble lady suffers an imaginary mental illness, and three imaginary Spanish counts try to marry the same real woman.The only sure bet is that there will be no honor among thieves.

THE ALCHEMIST is a hilariously nasty attack on hypocrisy, greed, morality, pomposity, pseudoscience, lust, justice, and human nature, where the fastest talkers and best disguises are the only winners and cheating is the whole game. Nothing Special Productions proudly presents THE ALCHEMIST directed by Jack Dugan Carpenter.
