Sound and Fury

Signifying nothing

Timon of Wall Street

I saw Timon of Athens at the Globe on Saturday. The weather was superb, which is lucky. The play was interesting, and given the whole banking crisis thing, the play seemed really appropriate. It’s all about debt and usury and so on. You could do some interesting things if you embraced a kind of banking setting for the play. Timon’s finding a $700bn stash of gold, perhaps. Timon ends the play paying prostitutes to spread disease and funding a warlord to attack his native Athens and then dies. This does not bode well for the credit crunch.

Lehmann of Athens. Heh.
