Royal Shakespeare Company
In a world driven by greed, what do we truly value?
Timon has it all – money, influence, friends. Surely it can’t last?
When the money runs out, Timon soon finds her influence and friends have also gone. Left alone, she flees Athens to take refuge in the woods, cursing the city she once loved.
Simon Godwin directs Kathryn Hunter as Timon in this dark satire, which forces us to question where does happiness really lie?
“A parable for our times” – Daily Telegraph ★★★★
“A searing central performance flips the gender dynamics as Shakespeare’s study of greed gets a ravishing revival” – The Guardian ★★★★
“Kathryn Hunter is hypnotic in this genderswitched tragedy” – The Telegraph ★★★★
“Simon Godwin has taken exactly the right approach to this new production of one of the Bard's most obscure, least performed plays. With a swashbuckling candour and refreshing energy, he's filleted and reformed the piece as a brisk, no-nonsense crash course in straightforward storytelling... the production is a handsome and judicious representation of this rarely done play, which should do much to rehabilitate it in the canon” – WhatsOnStage
