‘Bold, incisive… an urgent play for today.’Independent
‘A characteristically terrific performance from Simon Russell Beale.’ Daily Telegraph
‘A fable about the toxic nature of a ruthlessly commercialised world.’ Guardian
Simon Russell Beale takes the title role in Shakespeare’s strange fable of conspicuous consumption, debt and ruin.
Wealthy friend to the rich and powerful, patron of the arts, Timon of Athens showers gifts and hospitality on the city’s elite. He vastly outspends his resources and finds his coffers empty. When he calls upon his associates, instead of offering help, they hang him out to dry. After a final, vengeful banquet, Timon withdraws to a wasteland, living off roots and pouring ever more surreal curses on a morally bankrupt Athens.
