Timon of Athens

Timon of Athens

By William Shakespeare

Directed by Lisa Peterson

July 14 - October 7, 2023
Eileen and Allen Anes Studio Theatre
Sponsored by Crocker Catalyst Foundation
Timon’s compulsive generosity makes him the most popular man in Athens. The people flatter and praise him, all the while accepting his gifts. Timon is everyone’s best friend—until his wealth is suddenly gone. Destitute and disillusioned with so-called friends who have abandoned him, he turns his back on the world. A play for our times, Timon of Athens is clever, satiric, and deeply moving as it explores friendship, wealth, and the foibles of a materialistic society.
Content Advisory

Timon of Athens is one of Shakespeare’s lesser-known tragedies and contains Shakespeare’s usual sexual puns and innuendo, and themes of recklessness and ruin, but is suitable for all audiences.
