THE LION IN WINTER
The cast and crew has been one of the hardest working that I have had the
pleasure to work with. Their effort and dedication to make this a spectacular
production and their teamwork really showed through on and off the stage. I am blessed
to have been associated with this production............Len Wcislo, Producer

King Henry II of England has three sons by Eleanor of
Aquitaine: Richard, Geoffrey, and John. He wants the kingdom to stay united after
his death, but all three sons want to rule and it is likely to be torn apart by
revolution. Henry favors the youngest son while Eleanor favors the eldest. The
middle son hopes to play both ends against each other and come out on top. Henry
would like to have another heir by his mistress, but that would only add to the
contenders. Uneasy is the head on which the crown lies, and uneasy the truce
between a matchless king and queen. This mundane history is glorified in
language that is brilliant in its ability to characterize, its rhetorical
impact, its actability, and its generative power. Few since Shakespeare have had
such a marvelous gift for truly comic repartee.
