The Lion in Winter depicts the tumultuous relationship between Henry II of England and his wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine. With Eleanor recently released from prison, and their three sons arriving to spend time with the family on holiday, the question looms: who will be the next heir to the throne? Fraught with intrigue, each family member schemes to usurp the other. This delightfully wicked and ferociously funny drama by James Goldman investigates the balance between family roles and power structures, and how all can go sour when the chips are down. Directed by Rachel Haider at Central Park, celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Theater in the Park.
