This is the legendary story of King Henry II of England and the battle between his fiercely competitive sons to be chosen next in line for the throne. Add in his banished Queen, the notorious Eleanor of Aquitaine, mother of said sons and equally competitive, as well as King Phillip of France and two countries find themselves on the brink of bloody war at the whim of a temperamental and power hungry family. This classic tale of deception, manipulation and world dominance will draw you into its irresistible web and might not let you out without a fight. A collaboration with the MSU Department of Theatre.
