Continuing our performance from part one of William Shakespeare’s play, finishing things up with acts 4 and 5 plus some post-performance discussion with the cast.
This is the part of the play where Timon either has gone crazy or become enlightened, such that he’s trying to out-cynic the cynic philosopher Apemantus. Meanwhile, Socrates’ former admirer Alcibiades has been exiled and is coming back to make war on the city! Will Athens survive? What do these plots have to do with each other? Tune in and find out!
What did you think? Did you find this enjoyable, or too hard to follow, or what?
