A family feud of imperial proportions! Set during Christmas 1183, Lion tells the wickedly amusing tale of King Henry II, his imprisoned queen, Eleanor of Aquitaine, and their three entitled, double-dealing sons who vie for the throne. 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 and no one is spared the sword. Betrayal, treachery, and fights to the death – just another joyous Royal Family Christmas!
