The Lion in Winter

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.
