way, the production feels more
relevant and deeply true, even as
it invites appropriate sympathy for
its flawed monarch. I don’t think
I’ve ever left a history play with
so much to chew on.
“Timon of Athens” takes an
entirely different approach to one
of Shakespeare’s least performed
plays, but also succeeds of find-
ing real richness in difficult mate-
rial. The play involves a wealthy
Athenian who lavishes literally
obscene generosity on every sy-
cophant who grabs for his atten-
tion, quite deliberatively heedless
of the limits of his own resources,
sure that he is amassing friends
who will insulate him from any
possibility of want or suffering.
He gorges on his own generosity,
ignoring warnings from his faith-
ful steward and a misanthropic
philosopher that the reciproca-
tion will not be there to save him.
In the second half to the play, it
turns out the warnings were cor-
rect. Destitute and abandoned
by those he considered friends,
Timon becomes as self-indulgent
a misanthrope as he was a philan-
The play is really a fable, and it
is hard to imagine a more effective
container than the one that direc-
tor Amanda Dehnhert has devised.
The aesthetic is Brechtian, and the
design and music draw from a va-
riety of time periods (Weimar Ger-
many, Goth musicians, the Great
Depression). Music especially
carries the play to the dark places
it most needs to go without feeling
heavy-handed. And the cast is all
in, gamely serving a difficult play
that confronts us with humanity’s
As the title character, Anthony
Heald gives an especially gener-
ous performance as an essentially
selfish man. Timon fancies him-
self a philanthropist, but actually
is giving to himself, in a way that
is more common than we may
want to admit. He is not offering
his wealth to the poor, but rather
to those he thinks have the most
to offer him. He is a benefactor to
artists and to people of means or at
least potential means. His expec-
tations are not merely naive but,
rather, self-serving.
Both plays run until the end of
