Think of your most generous friend. And then multiply that generosity by about a million and add a latent vengeful streak about a mile wide. That's Timon of Athens, a rich lord who lends his buddies money and throws lavish parties until, one day, he finds himself broke. He then calls in his friends' debts, only to get excuses instead. Naturally, Timon is more than a little hacked off. We're counting on this staged reading, part of the partnership between AT&T Performing Arts Center and Shakespeare Dallas, to illuminate one of the Bard's more difficult and underperformed plays.
