THE JAMES PLAYS by Rona Munro
Presented by the National Theatre of Scotland, the Edinburgh International Festival and the National Theatre of Great Britain
James I: The Key Will Keep The Lock, James II: Day of the Innocents, and James III: The True Mirror
James I, James II and James III are a new cycle of history plays by award-winning playwright Rona Munro, directed by Laurie Sansom, Artistic Director of the National Theatre of Scotland, which are to be presented in an unprecedented co-production by the National Theatre of Scotland, Edinburgh International Festival and the National Theatre of Great Britain.
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, with its own distinct theatrical atmosphere. Viewed together they create a complex and compelling narrative on Scottish culture and nationhood.
Cast includes: Cameron Barnes, Daniel Cahill, Blythe Duff, Sofie Gråbøl, Sarah Higgins, James McArdle, Rona Morison, Mark Rowley and Fiona Wood.
