National Theatre of Scotland says
By Rona Munro
Directed by Laurie Sansom

James I, James II and James III 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 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 takes the audience through a rarely-explored period of history with playful wit and boisterous theatricality.
