"Undone by goodness..."
Fortune strains the bonds of friendship. Timon is a wealthy and popular aristocrat with but one flaw—an excess of generosity. Sparing no expense on lavish parties, expensive gifts, and charity, Timon later suffers a downturn of fortune and friendship. Robert Richmond (Othello, Richard III and Henry V at Folger Theatre) directs Shakespeare’s tragic satire about the fickleness of prosperity, with Helen Hayes Award-winner Ian Merrill Peakes (Othello, Macbeth, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead at Folger Theatre) in the title role.
Children under the age of four are not permitted in the theater. Every person entering the theatre must have a ticket.
Hear veteran Folger actors Ian Merrill Peakes (Timon) and Louis Butelli (Ventidius) explore the relationship between Iago from Othello and Timon from Timon of Athens.
