“The Lion in Winter" - 17th 18th, 19th January 2019 - 8pm


 

The Lion in Winter by James Goldman. Directed by Adam Rabinowitz.
17th, 18th and 19th January 2019, 8pm

Christmas, 1183: Henry II and his queen, Eleanor of Aquitaine, scheme against each other to position one of their three sons as next in line for the throne.  Meanwhile, Richard, John & Geoffrey, bicker and jostle for their parents’ favour.  The Lion in Winter combines keen historical and psychological insight with a caustic humour.  Its examination of family strife and sibling rivalry is as relevant to the twenty-first century as to the twelfth.  Goldman’s adaptation of his play for the 1968 film won him an Oscar.

A full page (A5 portrait) is £50 and half-page (A6 landscape) is £30. We can produce the artwork or work with anything ready prepared. Let's work together!
