ORONO – A local theater company is raising the curtain on a new Orono performance space with a roar.

True North Theatre is presenting their production of James Goldman’s “The Lion in Winter” at the former St. Mary’s Catholic Church – now known as the Old St. Mary’s Reception Hall - on Main Street in Orono. The show – directed by TNT artistic director Angela Bonacasa – runs through February 4.

The play was written in 1966, but the story is perhaps best known for the 1968 film version that starred Peter O’Toole and Katharine Hepburn and landed Hepburn the third of her four Best Actress Oscars. It’s the sordid saga of King Henry II of England and his machinations and manipulations with regards to his family and his legacy as he seeks to cement his place in history.
