Trevor Nunn to direct The Lion in Winter

Date Posted: 22/07/2011

Robert Lindsay and Joanna Lumley will lead the cast in Trevor Nunn’s production of James Goldman’s The Lion in Winter.

The Lion in Winter follows the yuletide celebrations as Henry II invites his estranged wife Eleanor of Aquitane, and his three sons, Richard, Geoffrey and John, to spend the festive season with him, his mistress Princess Alais, and her brother, the young King Philip of France. A family Christmas becomes a family at war, as the celebrations turn into a combat zone of deceit, betrayal, bitter power games and scabrous wit.

Opening at London’s Theatre Royal Haymarket on the 4th November and running until the 28th January, performance times are Monday to Saturday at 7.30pm, with Thursday and Saturday matinees at 2.30pm.
