Synopsis

'★★★★ – Kathryn Hunter is hypnotic in this gender-switched tragedy' – The Telegraph


'★★★★ – A searing central performance flips the gender dynamics as Shakespeare’s study of greed gets a ravishing revival' – The Guardian


In a world driven by greed, what do we truly value? Timon has it all – money, influence, friends. But 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. Featuring a stunning performance from award-winning actor Kathryn Hunter, Timon of Athens is a glittering and biting satire on whether money truly buys happiness.
