The Lion in Winter
Two legendary lovers fight a battle of wits over the throne of England
“Well – what shall we hang? The holly or each other?” Set during Christmas in 1183, King Henry II and his wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine are embroiled in a wickedly amusing battle over which son will inherit the crown. It’s a high-stakes political game of chess, and the future of England hangs in the balance. This Tony Award-winning production went on to become an instant classic and an Academy Award winning film starring Katherine Hepburn and Peter O’Toole.
A Powder Keg of Race, History and Public Relations
When Zoe is called into her history professor’s office to discuss a paper about the American Revolution, a civil conversation transforms into an urgent and personal debate. As the conflict intensifies, both women quickly pass the point of no return and must face the consequences. Hailed as “bristling and provocative” by The New York Times, this explosive drama forces us all to examine the ways we judge, the ways we debate, and the ways we condemn.
Tickets are $13 per student. Groups are entitled to one complimentary chaperone ticket per 10 students (additional chaperones will be charged).
