The James Plays: James IIIJames III is full of grand schemes in the third and final installment of Rona Munro's trio of new history plays, The James Plays, which play in rep at the National Theatre this autumn. Presenting "accessible, popular culture versions of our medieval history" (Scottish writer Munro told the BBC), James III picks up the action as Scotland approaches near civil war. Scottish actor Jamie Sives plays the charismatic, cultured king James III whose grandiose schemes his nation can ill afford. The actor got his big break in the acclaimed Scottish-Danish co-production, Wilbur (Wants To Kill Himself) and his long list of TV and film credits include appearances in Get Him to the Greek, Clash of the Titans, Doctor Who (as Captain Reynolds in the episode Tooth and Claw), and Game of Thrones in which he played Jory Cassel. In James III, his wife the Queen Margaret of Denmark, is played by Sofie Grabol, best known as detective Sarah Lund in the popular Scandinavian crime thriller The Killing, in her first stage role in English. She may be able to save the fragile monarchy from collapse.
