The James Plays

@ Festival Theatre

FROM Feb 26, 2016 8:00pm

National Theatre of Scotland
National Theatre of Great Britain
Edinburgh International Festival (United Kingdom)

Epic barely scratches the surface.

An Australian premiere exclusive to Adelaide, Rona Munro's new historical trilogy is the type of unforgettable, unrepeatable theatrical experience synonymous with the festival (think Roman Tragedies, The Mahabharata). Each play stands alone, but combined, The James Plays are more than seven hours of gripping, historical, political intrigue. Full of playful wit and boisterous theatricality, they create an intricate and compelling narrative of three generations of Stewart kings who ruled Scotland in the tumultuous 15th century. Commit. Surrender. Indulge.

We encourage you to experience the entire trilogy, either in one day or across multiple days. Single tickets are also available for all performances.


Bold and irreverent, James I explores the complex, colourful poet, lover and law-maker. A political prisoner from the age of 12, James is delivered home 18 years later with a ransom on his head and a new English bride.


In this cut-throat royal playground, a terrifying arena of sharp teeth and long knives, James II becomes the prize in a vicious game between Scotland's most powerful families.


Opening with a huge party James III is as colourful and unpredictable as the king himself. Charismatic, cultured, and obsessed with grandiose schemes his nation can ill afford, James is by turns loved and loathed.


'Better than Shakespeare... A feast of blistering emotion.' The Telegraph *****
