Sly Fox is a play based on Ben Jonson's Elizabethan drama Vulpine which was finished in 1606. It is a comedy about deceit, death, greed, fraud, and was influenced by Stefan Zweig's German adaptation. Although it took longer for Larry Gelbart and Arthur Penn to create their own version than the five weeks it took Jonson to compose his version, the Broadway opening was nonetheless a success. Jonson's original work is about how a fly who served as the clever fox's accomplice, announced that the fox's estate would be given to whoever proves to be the most generous and loyal. Sly Fox was developed as a means for deriving money from television to help Actors Studio.
