Audition Description

Betrayal, treachery, and a sword fight: it’s just another normal Christmas celebration for the royal Plantagenet family of Britain. In The Lion in Winter, King Henry II gathers his family together for a Christmas feast. Henry’s three plotting sons, each eager to take the throne, and Henry’s manipulative wife Eleanor of Aquitaine, newly released from house arrest (after raising an army against Henry) all manipulate, backstab, and squabble over who will be the next king. Eleanor and Henry use their offspring, lovers, and the French King Philip II as pawns against each other in a dangerous game for the throne.

  • The king of England, Henry is the husband of Eleanor of Aquitaine and the father of Richard, Geoffrey, and John. He also has taken Alais Capet as his mistress. In his fifties, Henry is nearing the years when most men of that age died; however, he still has remarkable vigor and wit, as well as physical prowess. His clear favorite for his successor is his son John, but his main desire is to keep his kingdom together after his death.

  • Role #2 - Eleanor of Aquitaine

    The wife of Henry II and mother of Richard, Geoffrey, and John, Eleanor is a strong and powerful woman. She has been a queen of international importance for 46 years and you know it. A genuinely feminine woman thoroughly capable of holding her own in a man’s world, she is a danger to Henry because of her strength and intelligence. She champions the fight for Richard to be the next king.

  • The middle son of Henry and Eleanor, Geoffrey is a man of energy and verve. He is attractive, charming, and the owner of the best brain in a brainy family. He has no one fighting for his right to any throne. A Machiavellian machine of a man whose bitterness over not being a favored child, is masked by an icy wit and wry smile.

  • The youngest of the three sons of Henry and Eleanor, John is described as a pimply and immature boy. Though he is often made sport of by his mother and older brothers, he is actually quite intelligent. John is also his father's choice for the crown, and he uses this knowledge to taunt his two brothers.

  • The sister of Philip Capet, Alais is of the royal blood of France and would thus, through a contracted marriage with Richard, ally the two strong countries of France and England. She was raised as a child by Eleanor, and is the mistress of Henry. She is no less a pawn in the machinations of Henry and Eleanor than are their sons.

  • The king of France, Philip is also the brother of Alais. He is young, but has already become a strong monarch, although no match for Henry. His desire is to marry Alais to Richard and have Richard crowned king, thus cementing a relationship between the two countries.
