Performances: Tue 2nd – Sat 6th April 2013, Bell Theatre


Timon is a rich young Athenian, incredibly generous with his wealth but undiscriminating and naive. Whenit is revealed to him that his money has all been spent he sends to those so-called friends to support him - but they all refuse.

Enraged by this behaviour, and now aware of the corrupting power of money and them evil it can cause men to do, Timon escapes to a wilderness, where he rejects all entreaties from those who visit him, and dies alone.

At the same time, Alcibiades, a businessman and friend of Timon who has been banished from Athens by the corrupt Senators who readily took his money when it was convenient, declares war on Athens and brings down its corrupt leaders.
