Olympia Little Theatre Presents
THE LION IN WINTER
By: James Goldman (Historical Drama)
Sibling rivalry, adultery and dungeons! A modern day classic. Comedic in tone, dramatic in action, the play tells the story of the Plantagenet family locked in a free for all of competing ambitions over a kingdom and the King’s paramour. The queen and wealthiest woman in the world, Eleanor of Aquitaine, has been kept in prison since raising an army against her husband, King Henry II. Released only for holidays, the play centers around the inner conflicts of the royal family during Christmas of 1183. As Eleanor says, “every family has its ups and downs,” and this royal family is no exception.
