Our season ends with another King Henry play; this time, about King Henry II, who imprisons his wife Eleanor in the tower because of her frequent attempts to overthrow him. With Eleanor out of the way, he can savour his dalliances with his young mistress. But Eleanor is not to be trifled with. Working through her sons, she plots the king's demise and the rise of her second and preferred son, Richard, to the throne. The youngest son, John – the only son holding his father's affection – is the king's choice for successor. But John is also overly eager for power and is willing to plot his father's demise with middle brother, Geoffrey, and the young king of France, Phillip. Engrossing and thrilling, this epic drama shows us that the bonds of family are weak indeed when ultimate power is at stake.

A riveting story proceeding through the interlocking love and lives of three close friends; Robert and Emma, who are husband and wife, and Jerry, Robert's best friend since college. Julius Caesar's Roman invasion of Celtic Britain is contrasted with teh Saxon invasion of Romano-Celtic Britain, and finally Britain;s involvement in Northern Ireland during the Troubles of the late 20th Century. It is a Restoration masterpiece; sexually frank, and as ready to skewer marriage as it is infidelity, the virtuosity, linguistic energy, brilliant wit, naughtiness and complexity of this ribald play have made it a staple of the modern stage.
