Reno, NV. James Goldman’s The Lion in Winter continues the 25th anniversary season at Brüka Theatre on January 26th, 2018. A game of thrones for the stage: with sibling rivalry, adultery, and dungeons The Lion in Winter is comedic in tone and dramatic in action. The play tells the story of the Plantagenet family, who are locked in a free-for-all of competing ambitions to inherit a kingdom. The queen, and wealthiest woman in the world, Eleanor of Aquitaine, has been kept in prison since raising an army against her husband, King Henry II. Eleanor released only for the holidays. The play centers around the inner conflicts of the royal family as they fight over both a kingdom and King Henry’s paramour during the Christmas of 1183. As Eleanor says, “Every family has its ups and downs,” and this royal family is no exception.

The Lion in Winter is a comedic historical drama directed by Diane Peters. The talented cast includes: Chip Arnold as Henry, Cami Thompson as Eleanor, Robert Zellers as Richard, Cody Canon as Geoffrey, Jessey Richards as John, Luke Allen as Philip, Lainey Henderson as Alais.
