Timon of Athens
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Kate Buckley
An APT first, this darkly gleaming gem marks an historic moment in our Shakespearian repertoire. Timon is an unforgettable character. A man of immense wealth and generosity, he goes from the toast of Athens to spurned and banished cur when he loses all his money. In the ravages of exile, Timon takes on the world in one magnificent arc of a primal curse. Our setting is modern times. An urban Athens of suits and ties, concrete and steel. A world of rampant sexuality and financial corruption, where money is king and friendship runs only as deep as the pocketbook.
