Tucson: Winding Road Theater Ensemble presents The Lion in Winter

Winding Road Theater Ensemble Presents The Lion in Winter

Glen Coffman Directs Period Play at Christ Presbyterian Church



(TUCSON, Ariz.) Winding Road Theater Ensemble presents The Lion in Winter by James Goldman. The play takes place at Christmas 1183 as Henry II’s family comes together for its annual feast of political maneuvering, sibling rivalry and family dysfunction. As alliances shift, family members attempt to manipulate each other for their own goals, a delightful collision of family, love and politics at Yuletide.  Directed by Glen Coffman, The Lion in Winter will be presented at Christ Presbyterian Church, 6565 E. Broadway Blvd. (north side of Broadway, one block east of Wilmot). It opens Jan. 14, and runs Jan. 15, 16, 21, 22, 23, 28, 29 and 30, 2011. Evening performances are at 7:30 p.m. Sunday matinees are at 2 p.m. Tickets cost $18 (with senior, student, military and theatre artist discounts). Call 520-401-3626 for reservations and information. Cash and checks only at the door. Credit card sales are available at www.windingroadtheater.org.


The Lion in Winter Cast:


The Lion in Winter cast features Winding Road Ensemble members Terry Erbe (Henry II), Lesley Abrams (Eleanor of Aquitaine) and Amy Erbe (Alais). Four other strong actors round out the cast: Christopher Johnson (Richard), Steve Wood (Geoffrey), Paul Matlock (John) and Nick Trice (Philip II).


About The Lion in Winter:


James Goldman’s historical play The Lion in Winter depicts the interpersonal relationships among members of the English royal family on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day of the year 1183. The play is set in the castle of King Henry II of England, located in Chinon, in the English-ruled region of France. Goldman’s screenplay adaptation of The Lion in Winter, which was released in 1968, won him an Academy Award.


(Continued on page 2 of 2)



(Continued from page 1 of 2)


The Lion in Winter concerns the interpersonal dynamics and political wrangling of King Henry; his wife Eleanor, whom he has kept imprisoned in a tower for the past 10 years; and their three sons, who are vying for the privilege of being named heir to the English throne. Eleanor, who has been let out of prison to celebrate Christmas with her family, favors Richard as heir, while Henry favors John. To complicate matters, the young King Philip II of France has arrived to remind Henry of a treaty he signed many years earlier, promising to marry his heir to Philip’s sister Alais. However, Alais has been Henry’s mistress for the past seven years, and Henry is hesitant to marry her off to any of his sons.


The Lion in Winter explores themes of dysfunctional family, political maneuvering, war and peace, as well as aging, death, inheritance and posterity. As the principal characters plot, scheme, conspire, and counter-plot between each other, the deep-seated emotional ties between them get played out in the political arena, such that sibling rivalry and marital jealousy translate into civil war, treason, and perhaps even murder among the members of a royal nuclear family.


About James Goldman:


A playwright who was fascinated by history, Goldman is best known as the author of the screenplay The Lion in Winter. Goldman was born in Chicago, and earned bachelors and a master’s degree at the University of Chicago before moving on to Columbia University, when his education was interrupted by the Korean War. After serving for two years as a private in the U.S. Army, Goldman decided to become a full-time writer. His first successful play, They Might Be Giants, a satire on the lunacy of life in New York City, was produced in 1961 in London's East End. Goldman's other outstanding success came in 1971 with Follies, a musical by Stephen Sondheim for which he wrote the book. Goldman was known for his love of history; other screenplay credits include the 1971 epic Nicholas and Alexandra, about the last days of Russia's last royal family, and the 1976 drama Robin and Marian, in which Robin Hood and Maid Marian reunite after a separation of 20 years. A novel, Myself as Witness (1980), about England's King John, is considered something of a sequel to The Lion in Winter. For television, he adapted Oliver Twist in 1982 and Anna Karenina in 1985. Goldman died in 1998.

Tucson: Blackbird at Beowulf Alley Theatre December 3-19


From: Beth Dell [mailto:theatre@beowulfalley.org]

Subject: Resending-Press Release and Photos-Blackbird


(Tucson, AZ) Beowulf Alley Theatre  presents the 2007 Olivier Award-winner, Blackbird by David Harrower, Performance will be held at the theatre, 11 South 6th Avenue, for three weekends only, December 3-19, 2010. Performance times are 7:30 p.m., Thursdays through Saturdays and 2:30 p.m. on Sundays. Directed by Laura Lippman, the cast includes Art Almquist, Elizabeth Leadon-Sonnenfelt and Chrissie Peterson.


From the time of Adam and Eve, we have been fascinated by that which is forbidden – and nothing more so than forbidden love. David Harrower's electrifying and explosive play, Blackbird, has Ray confronting his past when Una arrives unannounced at his office. Guilt and raw emotions run high as they recollect the passionate love affair they had fifteen years earlier. As tensions rise, we are left to question: When is love abuse? And can we ever break free from the shackles of the past? A hit of the Edinburgh Festival, and a critically acclaimed hit in New York and London, Blackbird is a provocative, no-holds-barred drama that both chills and thrills.

A fascinating and unnerving ninety-minute cat-and-mouse tale of revenge and sexual intrigue, with genuine theatricality and undeniable shock value. —Associated Press

Scottish playwright, David Harrower's plays include Knives in Hens; Kill the Old, Torture Their Young; Presence; and Dark Earth. Blackbird was shortlisted for the Saltire Society Book of the Year Award and won the 2007 Lawrence Olivier Award for Best New Play.

Laura Lippman, recently relocated to Tucson from Orlando, Florida. Recent Orlando directing credits include Rockaby and Endgame for Empty Spaces Theatre Company’s Beckett Festival and movement director for Equus at Rollins College. In addition, Laura has directed and developed new plays for over a decade, including recent works such as Charm and Letters to Sala at Orlando PlayFest, The Toymaker’s War for the National New Play Network Showcase, Upright Position, Destination: Reality and Transference with the Women Playwrights’ Initiative and Songs My Brother Sang for the GLBT New Works Series. She also adapted and directed Euripides’ Cyclops for the 2008 American Philological Association’s Annual Conference in Chicago along with her husband Mike. Laura studied acting at Bennington College and The Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff, Wales. She received her MFA in Directing from Carnegie Mellon University.
