Timon is the richest and most popular woman in Athens. She entertains crowds of people with lavish parties and showers them with money and expensive gifts. She believes herself surrounded by loyal friends.

But the money can’t last for ever. When Timon finds herself in desperate financial trouble, all those who flattered her now refuse to help her. Her disillusionment grows, as does her awareness of the huge divide between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots’.  Will she beg for scraps from those who have used and discarded her? Or will she abandon the city and all its greed and artifice, in search of something else?
