Timon of Athens - Peterhouse May Week Shakespeare

William Shakespeare

Note: Tickets for this event are no longer available to buy online, but can still be bought on the door with cash.

Timon of Athens is a nobleman, a benefactor and a socialite, a man who throws extravagant parties and generously supports a wide network of friends, tradesmen and artists. But when the debts are called in, his ‘friends’ turn cold, and his life spirals out of his control. Everything he thought he could count on is eroded beneath him.

One of Shakespeare’s lesser-known plays, this production hopes to revive a more unusual work and bring something fresh to the Cambridge Shakespeare scene.
