BLACKFRIARS PREMIERE. Epic and intimate. Brilliantly funny and deeply moving. The Lion in Winter plays out the spectacular strategies for power and love between two of England?s most formidable and most human rulers, King Henry II and Queen Eleanor, and their three crown-hungry sons. Telling the story of what happens before Shakespeare?s King John, The Lion in Winter is a modern theatrical masterpiece.
