Robert Lindsay and Joanna Lumley to star in The Lion in Winter

Popular actors Robert Lindsay and Joanna Lumley have been named in the cast of James Goldman's The Lion in Winter.

The production opens at the Haymarket theatre on Tuesday November 15th and runs until Saturday January 28th.

Those booking London theatre breaks will be able to see previews from Friday November 4th, with Trevor Nunn directing the show.

Joining Lindsay and Lumley on stage are Tom Bateman, Sonya Cassidy, Joseph Drake, Rory Fleck-Byrne and James Norton, with the play telling the story of a family at war at Christmas time.

Things start to go wrong when Henry II invites his estranged wife, three sons, mistress and her brother to spend the festive season with him, however, betrayal and bitter power games take over as they wait to find out who will succeed him as King of England.

The Lion in Winter is running as part of the Trevor Nunn season, with the director also currently in charge of The Tempest, starring Ralph Fiennes.
