Description

Artistic Director Simon Godwin makes his directorial debut at the Shakespeare Theatre Company with a re-staging of his recent, acclaimed production of "Timon of Athens", featuring Olivier Award-winner Kathryn Hunter in an “astonishing performance” ("The Guardian"). Timon lives in a golden world of opulence and generosity, throwing wild parties attended by politicians, artists, and the celebrities of Athens. When she loses her wealth and her friends abandon her, Timon takes to the forest, exchanging her luxurious gowns for sackcloth and plotting revenge against the city she loves. Godwin’s daring take on this rarely produced play yields “a parable for our times… and perhaps a nifty touchstone for spiritual renewal” ("Daily Telegraph").
