Audition Description

The Lion in Winter is set in 1173 and focuses on power, deception, love, and intrigue on a familial and global scale through a heightened depiction of King Henry II of England as he battles his Queen and scheming offspring to secure a solid line of royal succession for his country. The script gained broad appeal when it was made into an Academy Award-winning film starring Peter O'Toole and Katharine Hepburn.

  • Role #1 - Henry II

    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.
