The Lion in Winter
By James Goldman
Directed by C. Michael Wright
Henry II has banished his wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine, locked her in the castle tower and taken a nubile French mistress. All hell breaks loose when Eleanor is temporarily freed for the holidays and all three of their sons vie to inherit the throne. James Goldman’s classic black comedy serves up a tasty slice of British history and will be a collaborative effort with Marquette University’s Theatre Department.
