Lord Timon is the talk of the town. Surrounded by an entourage of glamorous, aristocratic flatterers, who hang on his every word, he lavishes expensive gifts on them and can't refuse anybody in their hour of need. Even in a decadent state, Timon's expenditure is monumental and matched only by his generosity...but where does generosity cross over into folly? Can the riot of display last? Will the 'friends' still be there when the money runs out? Cut to run at Eighty minutes, Gentleman Jack Theatre's maiden production is a streamlined rendition of this unique, but unjustly overlooked Shakespeare/Middleton collaboration, featuring Dance, Song, glamorous neckwear and Ferrero Rocher. It is a play of muscular verse, and subtle laughter. What more could you want? When power is increasingly held by the privileged, Timon of Athens challenges us to answer age old questions which are growing more, not less pertinent to the world we live in.
