The Complete Works of Shakespeare: Timon of Athens

Over the next five years, Shakespeare Dallas and AT&T Performing Arts Center will present staged readings of every single one of Williams Shakespeare's works. The tenth in the series is Timon of Athens, which tells the story of Timon, a kind and generous aristocrat in Athens with one major fault—he is a spendthrift.

Everyone loves him because of his generosity as a host. When Timon finds himself confronted with creditors, however, his steward, Flavius, can do little more than tell him that he is bankrupt. Timon then sends his servants to his “friends,” only to receive excuses in return; no one will lend him money to repay his debts. Angered by this, Timon invites them all to one last feast. The only dish, to everyone’s surprise, is warm water. Timon then denounces not only his former comrades but mankind as a whole.

Performances will take place in Hamon Hall.
