Timon of Athens is a play about money. It is a play about the buying and selling of friendship and what happens when funds run dry.
With the support of the City Council’s “Splash Adelaide” program, this work of site-specific theatre invites audiences to encounter “Athens” as an exclusive gathering taking place in the members-only stand of a horse race. It asks audiences to party with a group of privileged 20-somethings while social unrest bubbles; to meet Timon, a wealthy man who thinks he has it all; and to witness his fall from decadence to poverty.
