About this project

King Henry II allows Queen Eleanor, whom he has long imprisoned, to join the family's Christmas festivities at which he is determined to select an heir. He favors their youngest son, John, but Eleanor favors the eldest, Richard.  Because of the love-hate relationships they share with each other and their three remaining sons, tensions mount over heated, and often humorous, augments and fights.  The Lion In Winter shows us that even the most powerful of families have problems; that  the most broken of families share a complicated bond.               

In 1966, James Goldman (1927-1998) wrote this fictitious telling of the personal and political struggles of the English King.  Two years later, it was re-written by Goldman for the silver screen.  The movie starred Peter O’Toole, Katharine Hepburn, and Anthony Hopkins.

 Producer and director Bill Clayten is more than familiar with modern and contemporary theatre.  He had his first taste of a non-traditional stage in 1998 when he traveled with his college performance of Samuel Beckett’s Endgame to the Regional College Theatre Festival.  While there, he placed as an Irene Ryan Nominee for his portrayal of Clov.  His producer/directorial debut was with a stage adaptation of Trey Parker’s (South Park co-creator) Cannibal: The Musical.  Bill followed that up with the hard-hitting Zoo Story by Edward Albee.  He has since gone on to direct Happy Days by Samuel Beckett and WASP by Steve Martin. 

FAQ

  • It is for certain that there will be 6 performances with a minimum of 50 seats per showing. With a successful show, we will look to extend our run at other venues. That is an opportunity for us to broaden the reach of your advertisement.

  • No. The budget is higher than our GOAL. With wonderful opportunities, our budget has been greatly reduced. With our advertisement space being sold, only a minimal amount of money still needs to be raised.
