Three plays about James I, II and III of Scotland by Rona Munro, directed by Laurie Sansom

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

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.
