"The Lion In Winter"

29th June to 14th July

Written by James Goldman

Directed by Lynne Devenish


It is Christmas time at the palace of Chinon, and Henry has released his wife Eleanor from prison to share the family festivities. Henry’s 3 remaining sons, Richard Lionheart, Geoffrey and John, are constantly vying with each other over who will be king after Henry. Add to the mix, Henry’s mistress, the Princess Alais Capet and her half-brother Philip, King of France, and you set the scene for intrigue, power struggles, villainy, and treachery. Vitriol drips from the castle walls as the combatants attempt to metaphorically “pink” one another, time and time again.
How will it end, if indeed it does?
