Timon of Athens screened in LA
From 01 November 2012 To 01 November 2012Address
Downtown Independent, 251 South Main Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012, United States
On November 1st, the Downtown Independent in Los Angeles will be screening a UK theatrical production of William Shakespeare's Timon of Athens.
This is made possible as part of the National Theatre Live project, which aims to bring the most highly acclaimed stage works from London's West End to the rest of the world.
Simon Russell Beale - a highly acclaimed stage actor who has a role in the forthcoming James Bond film Skyfall - takes the lead.
Shakespeare is believed to have written the play in collaboration with Thomas Middleton - and it is a strange fable of consumption, debt and ruin.
The screening will be getting underway at 11:00 a.m. PDT - and is expected to last three hours.
Visitors to the city could do much worse than booking rooms at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel Los Angeles, as it is just a short, 15-minute walk away from the venue.
Important images of Mexico captured through the work of Gabriel Figueroa will be on display at LACMA from September 2013 until February 2014.
