Seven characters, all nobles of great power and among the most famous individuals of medieval Europe, struggle to name the next king of England.
A thousand years ago in the kingdom of England, a warrior king and his wife and rival struggle for control of their country’s future. Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine maneuver against each other to position their favorite son in line for succession.
By imagining the inner lives of King Henry, Queen Eleanor, their three sons: John, Geoffrey and Richard, the French King Philip and his sister Alais, The Lion in Winter is drama of family strife and competing ambitions, a work that gives visceral, modern-day relevance to the intrigues of ancient England.
Sides are available in The Center office.
