Play ConnectionsTimon of Athens (adaptation)


Timon is a successful but naive actor surrounded by shallow hangers on, painters, poets and up and coming band members. He finds himself crippled by debt and must re-mortgage his home to pay his bar bills. His friends quickly abandon him and so he takes to the streets to avoid his bailiffs and drinks himself into an asylum. With a slowly dissolving set and Burlesque dancers, this Shakespeare play is accessible and relevant to a modern audience.ʼ
