Timon of Athens

(2012/2013 Films)

Mon, Nov 19
7:30 PM

National Theatre Live

Simon Russell Beale takes the title role in Shakespeare’s strange fable of consumption, debt and ruin, in this “exhilarating” (Guardian, U.K.) production directed by Nicholas Hytner. A wealthy friend to the rich and powerful and an ostentatious host, Timon of Athens is surrounded by freeloaders and sycophants. After overspending his resources, he reassures his loyal steward that all will be well. When he calls upon his associates, instead of offering help, they hang him out to dry.
