About this show

It is Christmas in England, 1183, and the aging monarch, Henry II, brings together his exiled wife Queen Eleanor and his three sons in order to plan for his succession. The ensuing power struggles and attempts to craft political alliances engage you in the dramatic exploration of the ultimate family gathering. Playwright James Goldman creates a modern fiction from the circumstances of the past resulting in a deliciously witty and resonant evening of theatre. Director Rick Snyder brings a wonderfully authentic touch to this very contemporary play.
