Timon of Athens
June 26 – September 9 · Howard Family Stage in the Douglas Campbell Theatre
Colleen Wheeler stars as Timon, a privileged Vancouver woman whose generosity has no limits. When she loses her entire fortune, will her community still stand by her? Shakespeare’s powerful exploration of capitalism and greed is a parable for our times. Timon invites us to think about our place in a shallow world and to look beyond the wealth of the pocketbook towards the wealth of the heart.
Directed by Meg Roe (The Tempest, Bard 2014; Middletown, Shaw Festival 2017).
