The National Theatre of London wraps up its fall season on Sunday, Nov. 18, when the Sedona International Film Festival hosts the big screen premiere of the acclaimed British stage production "Timon of Athens". There will be two shows at 1 and 4:p.m. at the festival's Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

Simon Russell Beale takes the title role in the National Theatre of London's new production - a fable of consumption, debt and ruin.

Wealthy friend to the rich and powerful patron of the arts, ostentatious host Timon of Athens is surrounded by free-loaders and sycophants. He vastly outspends his resources but, finding his coffers empty, reassures his loyal steward that all will be well.

When he calls upon his associates, instead of offering help, they hang him out to dry. After a final, vengeful banquet, Timon withdraws to a literal and emotional wasteland, living off roots and pouring curses on a morally bankrupt Athens.

Simon Russell Beale has been described by the Independent as 'the greatest stage actor of his generation.' His recent work for the National Theatre includes London Assurance, Much Ado About Nothing and Collaborators, John Hodge's Olivier Award-nominated new play in which he portrayed Stalin.

Critics are raving about "Timon of Athens", which garnered highest 4-star and 5-star reviews from every major newspaper and magazine in London. It is playing to sold-out audiences for its entire run at the National Theatre.

"Bold, incisive revival ... an urgent play for today." - Daily Telegraph

"A lacerating parable for our troubled times. A characteristically terrific performance from Simon Russell Beale." - Evening Standard

"Fast, venomously satirical." - Daily Mail

"An exhilarating production featuring a compelling performance by Simon Russell Beale." - Guardian

"Timon of Athens" will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on one day only: Sunday, Nov. 18, at 1 and 4 p.m. Tickets are $15, or $12.50 for Film Festival members. Tickets are available in advance at the Sedona International Film Festival office or by calling 282-1177. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. 89A, in West Sedona.
