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.

Role # 1 - Henry II Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
King of England - Though aging, Henry is still very nearly as vital as he ever was. His manipulations of family and others are portrayed as spontaneous and emotional as opposed to the well-thought-out stratagems of Eleanor, and the cold, calculating machinations of Geoffrey.

Age: from 50 to 51
Ethnicity: Any -

Role # 2 - Queen Eleanor Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Queen Eleanor of Aquitane - Eleanor is the wife of Henry and a beautiful woman of hot temperament, and great authority and presence. She has been a queen for nearly 46 years and is thoroughly capable of holding her own in a man's world. She schemes against Henry and loves him intensely at the same time. She has contempt for her children but is not willing to see them harmed.

Gender: Female
Age: from 61 to 62
Ethnicity: Any -

Role # 3 - John Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
He is the youngest son of Henry and Eleanor. He is sulky and sullen, with a boyish outlook on his position; many in the play describe him as a spoiled brat. He is described in the play as pimply and smelling of compost. He is Henry's favourite, but also the weakest. He vacillates throughout the play, not out of cleverness, but out of fear and weakness. He is easily tricked and manipulated by Geoffrey.

Searchable talent specs:
Gender: Male
Age: from 16 to 17
Ethnicity: Any -

Role # 4 - Geoffrey Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
He is a son of Henry and Eleanor, and a man of energy and action. He is attractive, charming and has the strongest intellect of the family; he is also a cold, amoral schemer. His view of himself is of one who yearned greatly for the love of his parents while receiving none. Yet the play leaves open to question whether any of Henry's three sons should be thought to have been truly loved by either Henry or Eleanor and not merely used by King and Queen as pawns in their ceaseless scheming against one another.

Gender: Male
Age: from 25 to 26
Ethnicity: Any -

Role # 5 - Richard Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
The eldest surviving son of Henry and Eleanor (and later, in history, King Richard the Lionhearted), their second son Henry having recently died. Richard is handsome, graceful and impressive and has been a famous soldier since his middle teens. War is his profession and he is good at it. He is easily the strongest and toughest of the three sons/princes. Richard and Philip Capet have been sexually involved prior to the action of the play. However, Philip declares that he participated in the affair purely for political purposes, whereas Richard indicates he had genuine affection for Philip.

Age: from 26 to 27
Ethnicity: Any -

Role # 6 - Alais Capet Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
She is in love with Henry. Everyone underestimates her intellect and power. She is initially portrayed as innocent, but by the end of the play has begun to acquire a ruthless streak of her own, insisting that Henry imprison his three sons for the rest of their lives in the dungeon.

Searchable talent specs:
Gender: Female
Age: from 23 to 24
Ethnicity: Any -

Role # 7 - Philip II Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
King of France - He has been King of France for three years. He is not initially as accomplished as Henry in manipulating people, but seems to acquire greater skills at this during the play. He is impressive and handsome without being pretty.

Age: from 18 to 19
