If Shakespeare's plays are any indication, the darkest parts of human nature have hardly budged an inch since the early 1600s. Take his brilliant, challenging takedown of wealth and friendship -- and their messy intersection -- in Timon of Athens, a richly poetic, seldom-performed satire set in Ancient Greece. When rich and powerful aristocrat Timon's generosity leads to financial ruin, he's quickly and unceremoniously kicked to the curb by his so-called friends (real classy, guys). A deep cut from the Shakespearean oeuvre, Timon of Athens is both venomous and heart-breaking, careening from absurd comedy to savage tragedy unlike any other Shakespeare play. This will be Seattle Shakespeare Company's first production, a rare opportunity to see one of the Bard's best live on stage at Center Theatre.
