Photos! A Sneak Peek at ‘Timon of Athens’ at ASP


Timon of Athens explores the corrupting power of wealth and the devastating effects of financial ruin on the human soul. When Timon (played here by Artistic Director Allyn Burrows) hears that his friends need money, he generously offers them all the financial help he can provide. Soon even government officials are lining up for a share of Timon’s extravagant gifts and lavish parties. Timon’s cynical friend Apemantus warns Timon not to put his faith in these flatterers, but the trusting Timon rebukes him. When Timon’s creditors call all his debts due, his fair‐weather friends refuse to lend him money. Soon Timon finds himself barred from his home, forced to fire his loyal servants, and in utter financial ruin. His fury at the corrupt government of Athens and false friends leads him to a merciless revenge.
