James I, James II and James III – are a new cycle of history plays by award-winning playwright Rona Munro, directed by Laurie Sansom.

The James Plays are a modern cycle of history plays by award-winning playwright Rona Munro. This vividly-imagined trilogy brings to life three generations of Stewart Kings who ruled Scotland in the tumultuous fifteenth century. Each play stands alone as a unique vision of a country tussling with its past and future; viewed together they create a complex and compelling narrative on Scottish culture and nationhood. An ensemble of 20 actors takes the audience through a rarely-explored period of history with playful wit and boisterous theatricality.

James I: The Key Will Keep The Lock, James II: Day of the Innocents, and James III: The True Mirror

Touring to Edinburgh, Inverness, Glasgow, Northampton, Salford, Newcastle, Sheffield, Norwich, Canterbury, Plymouth and Nottingham from February to June 2016.

James I, James II and James III – are a new cycle of history plays by award-winning playwright Rona Munro, directed by Laurie Sansom.

This vividly-imagined trilogy brings to life three generations of Stewart Kings who ruled Scotland in the tumultuous fifteenth century and represents an unprecedented co-production by the National Theatre of Scotland, Edinburgh International Festival and The National Theatre of Great Britain.

Each play stands alone as a unique vision of a country tussling with its past and future; viewed together they create a complex and compelling narrative on Scottish culture and nationhood. An ensemble of 20 actors will take the audience through a rarely-explored period of history with playful wit and boisterous theatricality, and should prove a landmark of Scottish drama in a remarkable year.
