The Lion in Winter

by James Goldman
26 September-5 October 2024

Historical dramatic comedy centred around a family Christmas from hell. It is 1183 at Henry II's Chinon castle in France. The topic of the hour is the decision of who will inherit Henry's crown, and the alliances, deals and betrayals that ensue.

Expect medieval manoeuvring, plotting and politics, and the sharp, witty banter of a deeply dysfunctional dynasty.

Tickets for all our shows are available at Ticketsource.

    About Us

    Medway Little Theatre is situated in historic Rochester. It was converted from a disused warehouse into a 100-seat theatre in 1958. In 1995 we acquired the freehold to our premises with the aid of a generous grant from the old Rochester City Council. We are now a fully-equipped public theatre, with well over 400 productions behind us.

    There is always a welcoming atmosphere in our friendly auditorium with its integral bar. Anyone interested in joining the company in any capacity is invited to come along to meet us at our social nights, every Tuesday from 8pm onwards, except during productions.

    We have two active Youth Sections:

  • The Children's Workshop (ages 7-12) which meets on Saturdays from 1.30pm - 3.30pm
  • The Youth Company (ages 12-18) which meets on Saturdays from 10.30am - 12.30pm
  • We organise a one-act play festival annually for visiting youth and adult groups throughout North Kent and beyond.

    Over the years, we have presented a complete range of theatre, from Sophocles to The Graduate, as a scroll through our list of productions since 1959 will show, and we continue to use our small stage in ambitious and innovative ways.

    If you have enjoyed one of our productions and would like to leave a review, please click here.


    Our theatre is an historic building with steps to the entrance and a curving staircase to the toilet facilities on the upper floor. Our volunteers are on hand to help where possible, and we are looking at ways of making the building more accessible, but at present we feel we must make our patrons aware of this when arranging a visit.

    Performances which feature a sign language interpreter will be clearly marked on the Ticketsource booking page. The theatre has an induction loop system for people using hearing aids.
