Timon of Athens is one of Shakespeare’s neglected classics, featuring some of the bard's more experimental verse paired with some of his best poetry. This play - written in collaboration with Thomas Middleton - tracks two parallel lives: that of Timon, a rich philanthropist, and that of Alcibiadies, a military commander. Both men are betrayed by the people of Athens but face their betrayals in stark contrast. While Timon retreats to the wilderness to live as a hermit, Alcibidies mounts a military campaign to bring his former homeland to its knees. This beautiful and bitter satire inspired much of Samuel Beckett's work, three and a half centuries later.
