characters brought to life in royal drama
Barry Baynton's direction skilfully conveyed the dual aspects of petty family jealousies and the more serious fight for supremacy, and his cast rose well to the challenge.
Mark Ellen's strong-willed, devious Henry proved a perfect foil for Margaret Pope's equally manipulative Eleanor, with her excellent timing emphasising her character's frequent bons mots to perfection.
personalities of sons Richard, Geoffrey and John were strongly portrayed
in the fine performances of Tony Feltham, Tom Williams and Joe Bell.
