THE LION IN WINTER by James Goldman

"Well – what shall we hang? The holly or each other?" Set during Christmas 1183, The Lion in Winter tells the wickedly amusing tale of King Henry II, his imprisoned queen (released only for the holiday), and their three entitled sons who vie for the throne in a double-dealing division of the kingdom. A viciously funny drama is a high-stakes chess game where the pieces constantly change sides and no one is spared the sword. Brace yourself for an epic family takedown at PACA, just in time for the for the holidays.
