Timon of Athens is one
of Shakespeare's most obscure and least performed plays. It is the story of an
incredibly wealthy, powerful and generous man who lives way beyond his means.
When the bills come due and he discovers that he is broke, and turns to his so-called
friends to learn life's harsh lesson.
Sacred Fools while remaining true to the
text of the play has set Timon in a world that thrives on insincerity and schmoozing:
Hollywood & Las Vegas of the 90's. Amongst Timon's friends are screenwriters,
casting directors, crooked cops, strippers and burnt out movie stars.
This is a very modern telling of a story that we all can relate to.
What does it mean to be a friend in need?
