Clear

William Shakespeare visits Athens in 1600 AD. In the city that gave birth to democracy and the theatre, he will discover a new kind of narration and, with his ‘spear of wisdom’, travel in future to write his first adventure set outside Earth, in the capital city of planet Mars, New Athens. He recounts the works and days of the explorer, philosopher and great benefactor of planet Mars in the 23rd century AD, Timon the Athenian.

An epic on humanity beyond the bounds of time and space whereby William Shakespeare records the chronicle of the human effort to colonise the red planet.

A story of vindication that connects seven centuries of human will.
