St. Louis Shakespeare presents TIMON OF ATHENS
When the good-hearted Timon, who rains gold and gifts upon his friends, falls on hard times, he receives a bitter life's lesson: one by one his friends desert him. Stripped of his wealth, power and status, Timon finds himself removed from society, peering back at the life that was once his. Unreachable by any but his faithful servant Flavius and the similarly outcast Alcibiades, Timon flees Athens for the wilderness beyond the city's gates where an uncertain future awaits him.
St. Louis Shakespeare presents the local premiere of TIMON OF ATHENS, as the company nears its goal of producing all 38 of Shakespeare's plays by 2014. TIMON runs July 19 - 28 in the Hunter Theatre on the campus of DeSmet High School. A free, pre-show discussion is presented at 7pm on Saturday, July 20.
