Two Venetians - one historical, one fictional; one serious, one comic; a famous lover and a famous trickster - were brought to life by Arbery Productions for three-week runs at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2018. Award-winning writer Martin Foreman's four-star adaptation of Ben Jonson's Volpone, first seen at the Fringe in 2017 was revived as a two-act play, while his new one-act drama Casanova Dreaming looked at the life of Italy's most famous lover.

J B Priestley's rarely-performed one-act play The Rose and Crown brought in large audiences and four-star reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe.
