Lion In Winter Haymarket
Robert Lindsay and Joanna
Lumley star in The Lion in Winter, directed by Trevor Nunn
A family Christmas becomes a family at war.
Henry II, not so young as he was, invites his estranged wife
Eleanor of Aquitane, and his three sons, Richard, Geoffrey
and John, to spend the festive season with him, along with
his mistress Princess Alais, and her brother, the young King
Philip of France.
Will Henry name who is to be his successor as King of England?
Their yuletide celebration turns into a combat zone of deceit,
betrayal, bitter power games and scabrous wit.
