The Lion In WinterThe Lion In Winter
by James Goldman

November 7-11, 2001
Directed by Rhonda Clark

Featuring special guest star Maureen McGovern*

And you thought getting through the holidays with your family was challenging?

The family feud in King Henry II of England's household is in full force during the Christmas season as Henry works to preserve his legacy.

Steve Vann and Maureen McGovern in THE LION IN WINTERHenry wants to ensure his kingdom will stay united after his death, but each of his three sons want to rule, which almost guarantees revolution in the land. 

Henry favors his youngest son John, while his wife favors the eldest, Richard - while middle son Geoffrey is playing both ends against the middle and hopes to emerge the victor.

Henry even considers having another heir by his young mistress, but that would only add to the contenders for the throne! Full of comic repartee, Goldman makes history sparkle.
