Jonson's elixir of life

Thanks to Geoff L for this one which he spotted on the CBC/Radio-Canada website.

As he says: Who knew that London was plague-riddled as recently as 1910? And that Ben Jonson was there to write a witty play about it?


Given that Jonson was almost 300 years old by then, it's unlikely that he had much of an idea about anything actually.
