Acclaimed actress Kathlee Chalfant is Eleanor of Aquitaine in tonight's radio adaptation of James Goldman's A Lion In Winter
Back stabbing, spying, double crossing, and rampant infidelity - a typical family Christmas. Typical, that is, for the Plantagenets. James Goldman's brilliant historical drama A Lion In Winter pits King Henry II of England against the strong-willed Eleanor of Aquitaine as they battle over which of their sons will inherit the Crown.
A Lion In Winter will be the featured play tonight on The Play's The Thing. The radio adaptation stars Alfred Molina and Kathleen Chalfant. The show will also include an interview with Dr. Scott Waugh, Professor of History at the University of California, Los Angeles .
