The Lion in Winter
Directed by David Guilmette
July 31 to August 22, 1998
The 5th production of the 1998 Season
Written by: James Goldman
King Henry II has four sons, the eldest recently dead, and a new heir to the throne must be selected from the remaining: Richard, Geoffrey and John. King Henry favors the youngest and Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine, the eldest, and each has his own ambitions. The language is brilliant; few since Shakespeare have written such a truly comic repartee. Goldman carves syllables as pleasantly as he does hides.
