Neglected Shakespearean Classic Timon of Athens
Shakespeare's Timon of Athens-- written in collaboration with Thomas Middleton -- tracks two parallel lives: that of rich philanthropist Timon and that of Alcibiadies, a military commander. Both men are betrayed by the people of Athens but face their betrayals in stark contrast. While Timon retreats to the wilderness to live as a hermit, Alcibidies mounts a military campaign to bring his former homeland to its knees. This beautiful and bitter satire inspired much of Samuel Beckett's work, three and a half centuries later. Hear some of the Bard's more experimental verse paired with some of his best poetry when San Francisco's Cutting Ball brings Timon of Athens to EXIT Theatre on Taylor Street.
