The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis' season continues with a production of James Goldman's regal dramedy, The Lion in Winter. Edward Stern directs this duplicitous tale of twelfth-century political warfare, which revolves around the royal scheming of the members of the Plantagenet dynasty during the not-so-great Christmas of 1183. King Henry II of England is on the cusp of naming his successor while fending off threats from within his inner circle. Schemers include his estranged wife, Eleanor of Aquitaine, who has only recently been released from prison (Henry gave the order to jail her), and his three quarrelsome sons. The Lion in Winter is performed Tuesday through Sunday (January 8 through 31) at the Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; 314-968-4925 or www.repstl.org). Tickets are $17.50 to $79.50.
