THE LION IN WINTER
by James Goldman

Our season ends with another King Henry play; this time, about King Henry II, who imprisons his wife Eleanor in the tower because of her frequent attempts to overthrow him. With Eleanor out of the way, he can savour his dalliances with his young mistress. But Eleanor is not to be trifled with. Working through her sons, she plots the king's demise and the rise of her second and preferred son, Richard, to the throne. The youngest son, John – the only son holding his father's affection – is the king's choice for successor. But John is also overly eager for power and is willing to plot his father's demise with middle brother, Geoffrey, and the young king of France, Phillip. Engrossing and thrilling, this epic drama shows us that the bonds of family are weak indeed when ultimate power is at stake.

THE BEAUX STRATAGEM
by George Farquhar

George Farquhar’s glorious Restoration comedy follows Mr. Aimwell and Mr. Archer – the charming ‘beaux’ – as they arrive in provincial Lichfield after blowing their fortunes in giddy London. Their 'stratagem' is to marry for money. Lodged at the local inn, they encounter a teeming variety of human obstacles: a crooked landlord, a fearsome highwayman, a French Count, a maid on the make, a drunken husband, a furious butler, a natural healer, and a strange priest. But their greatest obstacle is love. When the beaux meet their match in Dorinda and Mrs Sullen they are most at risk, for in love they might be truly discovered.

TAKEN AT MIDNIGHT
by Mark Hayhurst
Germany, 1931. Lawyer Hans Litten is famed for the brilliance with which he defends opponents of the Nazi movement. When he calls Adolf Hitler as the star witness in the trial of a band of murderous Nazi paramilitaries, the politician feels the full force of Litten's intellect, wit and courage. Two years later, Hans is arrested, held without trial, and tortured, leaving his indomitable mother to confront his captors at enormous personal risk. Taken At Midnight examines the life of the celebrated lawyer, his cross-examination of Hitler in court in 1931, and his courageous mother's attempts to secure his release after his arrest by the Nazis in 1933.

SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE
Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Book by James Lapine
Inspired by George Seurat’s magnificent painting, ‘A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte,’ Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s soaring musical is itself an artistic masterpiece. The musical begins with the story of George and his model and lover Dot. As George struggles to find his artistic voice, he becomes more and more distant from the one woman who truly sees him for who he really is. Meanwhile, the characters that inhabit George’s painting have lives unto themselves, which George captures with his paintbrush. Through melodic and heartbreaking music, poetic lyrics, and quick, jaunty wit, Sunday in the Park with George reveals universal truths about the nature of art, love, and passion, with the breadth and depth of art’s most enduring masterpieces.

COMPANY is presented through special arrangement with

THE TRAIN DRIVER
by Athol Fugard
Roelf, a train driver, has spent weeks searching for the identities of a mother and child he unintentionally killed with his train on the track between Philippi and Nyanga on South Africa’s Cape Flats. After a fruitless journey through shanty towns, he encounters an old gravedigger named Simon who helps the desperate man unburden his conscience. Based on a true story, Athol Fugard’s beautiful and haunting The Train Driver is a soulful exploration of guilt, suffering, redemption, and the powerful bonds that grow between strangers. “Brave, confrontational and tender... Essential theatre viewing.” Sunday Times, South Africa.
