National Theatre Live: Timon of Athens
November 28, 2012
3200 Darnell St. , Fort Worth, TX
$10 - $18
Simon Russell Beale takes the title role in Shakespeare's strange fable of consumption, debt and ruin, written in collaboration with Thomas Middleton.
Wealthy friend to the rich and powerful, patron of the arts, and ostentatious host, Timon of Athens is surrounded by freeloaders and sycophants. When he vastly outspends his resources he calls upon his associates, but instead of offering help, they hang him out to dry. After a final, vengeful banquet, Timon withdraws to a literal and emotional wasteland, living off roots and pouring curses on a morally bankrupt Athens.
$18.00 Adults, $15.00 Seniors, $10.00 Students
