TIMON OF ATHENS by William Shakespeare


Our Timon lives in the present day. He is a member of the elite, and carries on as if the economic crisis never happened and lives oblivious to the fact that the world outside his window is crumbling to the ground. He is a man who loses everything – whose friends abandon him when he needs them most – who finally lives in a self imposed exile in a trash heap on the outskirts of the city, feeding on whatever he can find – whatever scraps the others throw in his way. Thanks to an ironic twist of destiny he finds a suitcase filled with gold. Giving him the opportunity to confront those that turned their backs on him and to tell them what he thinks of them and the society in which they live. Timon of Athens functions like a behavioural laboratory, like a game of mirrors reflecting an all too familiar society. It is a cry for change in our social paradigm – to leave behind the existing model and move toward new and unknown territory.
