The Lion in Winter
|January 24 - February 17, 2013||Buy Show Tickets|
A legendary king and an incomparable queen meet for one last Winter Court - and a battle that will determine the future of an empire. As the sun sets on his reign, Henry Plantagenet, “the greatest power in a thousand years,” calls his wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine, and their three sons to Chinon, France for the negotiation of a treaty and a marriage contract. Locked behind the palace doors, a deadly game of alliances and betrayals unfolds as each of the players, fueled by anger and old wounds, moves to control who will set on the throne when Henry is gone. Combining keen historical and psychological insight with delicious, mordant wit, THE LION IN WINTER is a not-to-be-missed theatrical event!
