Theatre in the Rough opens 'Lion in Winter'

Theatre in the Rough will open their spring production, “Lion in Winter,” this weekend.

The classic play was written in 1966 by James Goldman. Set in 1183, it is a fictionalized account of the familial and political relationships between historical figures: King Henry II of England; his wife, Eleanor; their three sons, John, Geoffrey and Richard; King Philip II of France; and Henry’s mistress, Alais.

In 1968 it was adapted for the screen by Goldman -- starring Peter O’Toole, Katharine Hepburn and Anthony Hopkins -- and won multiple Academy Awards, including best screenplay.

The show opens Friday at 7:30 p.m. at McPhetres Hall, on the corner of 4th and Gold Streets downtown; a free preview performance will be offered tonight at 7:30 p.m. Shows continue on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays through March 11.

Tickets are available at Hearthside Books, the JACC and at the door, with door sales offered 30 minutes before showtimes.
