Posted: 4th January 2012
For most families, 'Christmas' is just the name of another field of battle to play out feuds no one can remember the origin of. It has always been this way, surrounded by the people you love most but whose company you cannot bear. It is probably the same story for most families, rich or poor - even during the 12th century, the time during which this James-Goldman-penned drama is based.
Henry II (Robert Lindsay), King of England, seemingly cannot resist the festive urge to assemble a potent mix of explosive personalities at Christmas, as he invites his estranged wife Eleanor of Aquitane (Joanna Lumley) and his three sons, Richard, Geoffrey and John, to join him for Yuletide in the year 1183. He also invites his mistress (and half-sister) Princess Alais, and her brother, the young King Philip of France to join them. Whatever could go wrong?
The Theatre Royal in Haymarket began hosting this feudal and Festive-flavoured thriller of betrayal and bitter power-struggles back in October. During its run, "The Lion In Winter" has garnered favourable reviews from the Telegraph et al, but is due to come to an end on 28th January.
