TIMON OF ATHENS
The Grandstand in Victoria Park / Pakapakanthi
Written By: William Shakespeare
Directed By: Mary Rose Angley
With the support of Splash Adelaide, Symposium Productions has brought together a cast of talented South Australian actors to create an immersive and interactive Shakespeare experience taking place in and around the Victoria Park Grandstand.
Enter “Athens”, an exclusive gathering taking place in the members stand of a horse race. Explore the luxurious lifestyles of a group of privileged 20-somethings while social unrest bubbles. Meet Timon, a wealthy man who thinks he has it all, and witness his fall from luxury to poverty.
Philosophical and innovative, this production will see a rarely-performed Shakespearean play brought into the modern day: is Timon a reckless smashed-avocado-eating millennial, or the victim of a society made up of credit, debt and false friends? You are invited to move around the space and interact with actors in order to come to your own conclusions.
Approx. Running Time: 95 minutes.
