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.

This is a rare chance to see Shakespeare’s comic tragedy, which asks us to question our values and the credit culture we inhabit in 2018.

Simon Godwin (The Two Gentlemen of Verona, Hamlet) returns to direct Kathryn Hunter as Timon in this dark satire, which forces us to question where happiness really lies?

The performances on 8 and 16 January 2019 will be filmed for future broadcast.
