This week’s theater openings

This week welcomes The Lion in Winter and This World We Know.

The Lion in Winter

  • Henley Street Theatre • Leslie Cheek Theater at the VMFA
  • February 5th – 28th
  • Buy tickets online

In a family scuffle over succession to England’s throne, King Henry II of England squares off against three malcontented sons and his banished queen, the notorious Eleanor of Aquitaine. The kingdom teeters on the brink of bloody war, but the conniving members of this power-hungry tribe maneuver precariously for power, in this darkly hilarious modern take on medieval royals. Starring David Bridgewater as Henry II and Melissa Johnston Price as Eleanor. We are proud to be the first to bring a full run of a theatrical production back to the Leslie Cheek Theatre at the VMFA after a hiatus of thirteen years.

This World We Know

  • Firehouse Theater • 1609 W. Broad Street
  • February 5th – March 7th
  • Buy tickets online

Winner of the 2013 Festival of New American Plays, This World We Know tells the story of the lives of an estranged brother and sister with their younger selves. As the play unfolds, the characters struggle to choose between unearthing the roots of their hostility or burying their last chance at reconciliation at the earth of their family tree.
