Oh, Henry! A live performance of 'The Lion in Winter' at Green Oasis Community Garden

On Saturday night, Le Petit Versailles/Allied Productions, Inc. is presenting "a live outdoor theatrical performance" of James Goldman's original 1966 play, "A Lion in WInter." 

The show happens at Green Oasis Community Garden, 370 E. Eighth St. between Avenue C and Avenue D at 8 p.m. (Rain date: Sunday at 2.) Here's info via the EVG inbox:
An Even Queerer Rendition Than The Movie 
If you know the 1968 film directed by Anthony Harvey you know the over the top performances delivered by Katharine Hepburn, Peter O’Toole, Anthony Hopkins and budding stud Timothy Dalton. Director and artist par excellence tops the dark comedy in performance, and by delivery of the original script as written, historically based while hilariously anachronous. 
Admission is by suggested donation of $20 with no one turned away for lack of funds. Proceeds will benefit the play's presenter Le Petit Versailles and the hosting Green Oasis Community Garden. 
The performance represents the first collaboration in cultural programming between the two community gardens and the last major presentation of LPV's 2020 season. The fundraising compliments Allied Productions' celebration of its 40th year in serving the public through its support of the development of experimental art and progressive culture.
