Subject:        Titus

This appeared on the "plays and playwrights" list:

"Timon is too often played as an old man, which is one of the reasons so
many people think the play doesn't work.  Timon makes sense only if he
is a young man, perhaps 10 years older than Romeo & Juliet, both in my
opinion, and the opinion of just about any expert who likes the play."

Is this true?  The bit about the experts?
