The James Plays: James IIThe second of three new plays by award-winning writer Rona Munro about 15th century Scottish kings, in James II the king has become the ultimate prize in a terrible game being played by Scotland's most powerful families. James, played by Andrew Rothney (Blackbird, KJB: The Book That Changed the World, The Cottage), can only trust William his childhood friend and the future Earl of Douglas. He must fight to keep his slim hold of the crown, whilst dealing with childhood nightmares. Speaking to the BBC, Laurie Sansom, artistic director of the National Theatre of Scotland who directs all three James Plays, said the plays were "daring, passionate and offer a tumultuous ride through Scottish 15th Century history".
