NT Live: Timon of Athens

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, ostentatious host, Timon of Athens is surrounded by free-loaders and sycophants. He vastly outspends his resources but, finding his coffers empty, 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. After a final, vengeful banquet, Timon withdraws to a literal and emotional wasteland, living off roots and pouring curses on a morally bankrupt Athens.

‘A fable about the toxic nature of a ruthlessly commercialised world.’ Guardian

‘Bold, incisive revival ... an urgent play for today.’ Daily Telegraph

‘A lacerating parable for our troubled times.

A characteristically terrific performance from Simon Russell Beale.’ Evening Standard


Opens 29 November at Light House Petone
