Scotland, 1504, seen fresh through the eyes of new arrivals Ellen and Anne, two Moorish women who were expected to take their place at a royal court....but not this one. Both women now have to fight to find and keep a place in the dazzling, dangerous world of the Scottish Court of James IV. It’s a world where war is never far away, words of love and promises of peace are not what they seem and where poets might turn out to be more dangerous than any assassin.
Blythe Duff ( Taggart, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) and Daniel Cahill ( All My Sons for Dundee Rep and River City for BBC) are returning to The James Plays following their roles in James I, II and III, and are joined by Danielle Jam ( Them! For NTS , Molly and Mack for BBC) as Ellen, and Laura Lovemore ( Queen of the New Year for BBC and Life is a Dream for The Lyceum) as Anne.
Employing the same wit and theatricality of the first three James Plays, acclaimed playwright Rona Munro takes you back to a thrilling and uncharted period of Scottish history in this brand-new production. Join us on the journey.
Please note: Preview performances are on 30 September, 1 October and 3 October.
