Timon of Athens: A Theatrical Reading with the Shakespeare Project of Chicago
“Ah, when the means are gone that buy this praise,
The breath is gone wherof this praise is made.
Feast-won, fast-lost; one cloud of winter showers,
These flies are couched.”
In this theatrical reading, professional actors from the Shakespeare Project of Chicago will bring Timon of Athens to life in a performance directed by Michelle Shupe.
Founded in 1993, the Shakespeare Project of Chicago has performed at the Newberry since 2003. This reading will be preceded by an informative talk by a dramaturg and followed by a question-and-answer talkback with the director and cast.
