Touring various outdoor locations
June 5-28   7pm

*The Life Of Timon Of Athens*, co-written by William Shakespeare and Thomas
Middleton, holds a unique place in the Bard’s canon – a biting social
satire about friendship as a commodity to be bought and sold, in a world
where the greatest sin of all is debt.

In director David Hansen’s adaptation, Timon is the most admired man on
campus, whose boundless generosity leads him to ruin. Betrayed by his
friends, he abandons civilization and goes “back to the land”. As unrest
grows in Athens, both sides appeal for his help.  Set in a certain state
university in 1970, against a backdrop of unpopular war and student
unrest, *The
Life of Timon of Athens* is a hilarious history of hip hypocrisy.
