The
Lion in Winter

The
play is set in 12th century England and
the joys of live theatre transcend the story told – it will be a night
to
remember!

James
Goldman’s historical play The Lion in
Winter depicts the interpersonal relationships among members of the
English
royal family on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day of the year 1183. The
play is
set in the castle of King Henry II of England, located in Chinon, in
the
English-ruled region of France. Debuted as a Broadway play in 1966,
Goldman’s
screenplay adaptation of The Lion in Winter, which was released in
1968, won
him an Academy Award.

The
Lion in Winter concerns the
interpersonal dynamics and political wrangling of King Henry; his wife
Eleanor,
whom he has kept imprisoned in a tower for the past ten years; and
their three
sons, who are vying for the privilege of being named heir to the
English
throne. Eleanor, who has been let out of prison to celebrate Christmas
with her
family, favors Richard as heir, while Henry favors John. To complicate
matters,
the young King Philip II of France has arrived to remind Henry of a
treaty he
signed many years earlier, promising to marry his heir to Philip’s
sister
Alais. However, Alais has been Henry’s mistress for the past seven
years, and
Henry is hesitant to marry her off to any of his sons.

The
Lion in Winter explores themes of
dysfunctional family, political maneuvering, war and peace, as well as
aging,
death, inheritance, and posterity. As the principle characters plot,
scheme,
conspire, and counter-plot between each other, the deepseated emotional
ties
between them get played out in the political arena, such that sibling
rivalry
and marital jealousy translate into civil war, treason, and perhaps
even murder
among the members of a royal nuclear family.

Global Economy
The Global
Economy: Maybe the Glass is Half Full? 

To
say that Europe dominated the 2011 financial headlines would be an
understatement. One word or comment from a European politician or
central banker sent stock markets tumbling. Conversely, the smallest
hint of a resolution to the debt problems of the other “PIIGS” nations
(Portugal, Ireland, Italy, Greece, and Spain) sent the markets soaring.
