Lion in Winter

Game of Thrones in the 12th Century comes to Billingham Players this February as we present Lion in Winter.

A family feud of imperial proportions.

“Well – what shall we hang? The holly or each other?” Set during Christmas 1183, The Lion in Winter tells the wickedly amusing tale of King Henry II, his imprisoned queen (released only for the holiday), and their three entitled sons who vie for the throne in a double-dealing division of the kingdom.

Best known for the film adaptation starring Peter O’Toole and Katharine Hepburn, this viciously funny drama is a high-stakes chess game where the pieces constantly change sides and no one is spared the sword. Brace yourself for an epic family takedown at the Theatre Upstairs, Billingham!

Monday 24 – Saturday 29 February 2020, tickets are £10 and £5 for students.
