This controversial play follows the declining fortunes of a man of extravagant contradictions.
The fabulously rich Timon believes all his friends to be as open-hearted and generous as himself. When his wealth suddenly evaporates, however, he discovers the truth and his altruism turns to a bitter hatred of mankind. Stirred up by the cynical Apemantus, Timon retreats to the woods where he plots the destruction of Athens, the city that had formerly seemed to embody everything pleasurable and civilized. The cosmic scope of his hatred is communicated in a series of powerful and disturbing dramatic tableaux.
Alan Howard is Timon and Norman Rodway is Apemantus. Damian Lewis play Alcibiades.

ArkAngel is always a wonderful interpretation
I love it when a lesser known play by Shakespeare gets the time and attention it deserves.
Alcibiades performed by Damien Lewis. I enjoy Damien Lewis!
I have seen television shows and movies performed by Damien Lewis, this was the first audiobook I had heard him perform in.
I enjoyed Timon's plot to destroy Athens.
