Friday, November 15, 2019Time 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
It’s Christmas 1183 and a conniving King Henry II (Derek Dutcher) plans a reunion where he hopes to name his successor. He summons his scheming but imprisoned wife, Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine (Alice Court), his mistress, Princess Alais (Nancy Ryan), his three sons, Richard (Mark Masselink), Geoffrey (Peter Powell), and John (Lew Hastings), all of whom desire the throne; and the crafty King Philip of France (Hal McCombs), who is also Alais’ brother. Everyone present are masters of double-dealing and deceit, so it could be a lively Yuletide.
