Free Folger Friday: My Fool, My Purse: Talking Timon and Iago

Friday, May 19, 2017, 6:00 pm
Folger Theatre
Free, reservations requested

In 1983, scholar A.D. Nuttall referred to Timon of Athens as “Iago-like.” Both characters have been described as misanthropic, but how deep does the comparison run? Hear veteran Folger actors Ian Merrill Peakes (Timon in Timon of Athens) and Louis Butelli (Ventidius in Timon of Athens) explore the relationship between Iago from Othello and Timon from Timon of Athens in this Folger Friday discussion.
