Poignant, funny and bitter, this is a rare chance to see Shakespeare's most modern creation: a story of how the world moves from privilege to poverty with heartbreaking speed.

Timon is a celebrated member of the establishment, whose exploitation by false friends forces us to gaze into the cravings we all share. Simon Godwin (The Two Gentlemen of Verona, Hamlet) returns to direct Kathryn Hunter as Timon in Shakespeare’s sharp satire on wealth, greed and betrayal.

The performances on 15 and 16 January 2019 will be filmed for future broadcast.
