The Two Of Us Productions is pleased to present The Lion In Winter by James Goldman on Saturday evening May 1, 2021, a Virtual Live-Staged Reading starting at 7:30 pm.

In a tale of sibling rivalry, intrigue, adultery, and dungeons, The Lion In Winter by James Goldman tells the story of the Plantagenet family locked in a free-for-all of competing ambitions to inherit a kingdom. The queen, and wealthiest woman in the world of 12th century Britain, Eleanor of Aquitaine, has been kept in prison since raising an army against her husband, King Henry II. The play delves into the inner conflicts of the royal family as they fight over both a kingdom and King Henry’s paramour, the French princess Alais Capet during the Christmas of 1183.

As Eleanor, who is let out of prison only for holidays, says, “Every family has its ups and downs,” and this royal family is no exception.
