Sweet Tea Shakespeare Presents Timon of Athens
Green Tea, Sweet Tea Shakespeare’s youth company, is excited to present Timon of Athens, a tragicomedy of friendship and greed.
One of Shakespeare’s lesser-performed plays, Timon, is a breathtaking and heartbreaking story of foolishness, friendship, and loyalty. Timon, a lord of Athens, spends money wastefully on friends who quickly abandon him once financial ruin hits. Only the most loyal of his friends and confidants stick around, even as Timon descends into destitution and a life as a hermit. An exceptional exploration of love, grace, and persistence, Timon features Sweet Tea Shakespeare’s Green Tea youth company. Starts bright and carefree, with notes of friendship; finishes dark, with greed and its aftermath.
Directed by Jen Pommerenke & Traycie Kuhn-Zapata, Timon of Athens will be performed August 21 at Carleen’s of Hope Mills at the Moulder-Warner Home and August 22-24 at the 1897 Poe House.
The performances will begin at 7:30pm with our famous What You Will Preshow 30 minutes prior to curtain.
