About Lion In Winter

THE LION IN WINTER

Robert Lindsay
and Joanna Lumley will lead the cast in Trevor Nunn’s production of James Goldman’s The Lion in Winter

The Lion in Winter will run from 4 November – 28 January, with press night on 15 November 2011.  The Lion in Winter is produced by the Theatre Royal Haymarket Company.  Further casting will be announced shortly.

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, 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.

 

Robert Lindsay returns to the Theatre Royal Haymarket where he was last seen playing the title role of Cyrano de Bergerac.  Previously he has been seen as Archie Rice in The Entertainer at the Old Vic, he played the title role in Richard III at the Savoy Theatre, Fagin in Oliver! at the Palladium for which he won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Actor in a Musical and Me and My Girl for which he won the Laurence Olivier Award for Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Musical and, when it transferred to Broadway, the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical.  Most recently he played the title role in Onassis at the Novello Theatre.  Lindsay can currently be seen as Ben Harper in the hugely successful BBC television series My Family playing opposite Zoë Wanamaker.  His other television credits include The Trial of Tony Blair, Extras, Jericho, Citizen Smith, Jake's Progress, Genghis Cohn and GBH, for which he won a BAFTA Award for Best Actor.  His films include Wimbledon, Divorcing Jack and Remember Me.
