Bread and Circus Theatre Company concludes its ninth season with James Goldman’s wonderful, acid-tongued look at one of England’s most fascinating royal families. THE LION IN WINTER is the tale of one holiday family get-together that is anything but congenial. The highly dysfunctional group includes King Henry II; his regal wife Eleanor of Aquitaine, whom he has kept imprisoned for ten years; France’s boy king Philip, son of Eleanor’s former spouse Louis; Henry’s mistress, Alais; and his three thoroughly rotten sons, Richard the Lionhearted, Geoffrey, and Bad Prince John (of later Magna Charta and Robin Hood fame). Even spiders get tangled in the webs woven by these first-class intriguers! One of Broadway’s best and a real treat for everyone. Some language may be unsuitable for children under ten.
