Timon of Athens archiveA notable Athenian falls prey to false friends and parasites because of his own beauty - now his money is almost gone. Spurning his false friends he hides in the woods outside the city where he finds gold, some of which he shares with Alcibiadies, himself unjustly banished, and his loyal servant. Eventually he dies and hearing of it Alcibiadies decides to revenge his death on the city. Michael Pennington will rejoin the Royal Shakespeare Company to take over the title role, he replaces Alan Bates who has regrettably had to give up the role because of a chest infection.
