Read Not Dead: The Devil is an Ass

17 April, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The Devil is an Ass was first performed in 1616, too late to be included in the folio edition of Ben Jonson’s Works.

Set in the vice-ridden world of early Jacobean London, Jonson’s dark comedy follows the young demon, Pug, as he carries out Satan’s work.

Pug quickly realises that his wickedness is no match for the debauchery and immorality that already governs the city. Even Fabian Fitzdottrel, his chosen victim, seems unreceptive to Pug’s torments. Could that be because Fitzdottrel is already under attack from some very human devils attempting to steal his money and his wife?
