The Show

It’s Christmas 1183, and King Henry II is planning to announce his successor to the
throne. Henry has three sons and wants his boy Prince John to take over. But Henry’s
incarcerated wife, Queen Eleanor, has other ideas. She believes their son Prince Richard
should be king. As the family and various schemers gather for the holiday, each tries to
make the indecisive king choose their option. As Eleanor says, “Every family has its ups and
downs,” and this royal family is no exception.
