by James Goldman


King Henry II of England has three sons by Eleanor of Aquitaine: Richard, Geoffrey and John. He wants the kingdom to stay united after his death, but all three sons want to rule and it is likely to be torn apart by civil war. Henry favors the youngest son while Eleanor favors the eldest. The the middle son hopes to play both ends against each other and come out on top. Uneasy is the head on which the crown lies, and uneasy the truce between a matchless king and queen. This mundane history is glorified in language that is brilliant. Few since Shakespeare have had such a marvelous gift for truly comic repartee. A work of intelligence, astringent wit, and much theatrical skill” —NY Times
