The Alchemist

Alchemy is a pretty kind of game,
Somewhat like tricks o’ the cards, to cheat a man
With charming.

Lovewit has left his London home in the care of his trusted servant Jeremy, who promptly changes his name and transforms the property into headquarters for an elaborate criminal enterprise. A laugh-out-loud satire from the slick wit of Shakespeare's rival Ben Jonson, the Original Practices performance of "The Alchemist" is a can't-miss, one-night-only event.

Since 1958, the Colorado Shakespeare Festival has delighted audiences with professional theatre on the CU Boulder campus. Complete your Colorado summer with Shakespeare under the stars in the historic Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre—complimentary seatbacks included.
