Yesterday I witnessed the press call for The James Plays, a fascinating tale of Scotish history and the lives of James I, II and III of Scotland. Penned by Rona Munro and directed by Laurie Sansom the epic tale is told over three individual plays, each on at the Festival Theatre on the North Bridge.
These sketches are from James I and see the newly married couple speaking for the first time and slowly getting to know each other. I was hooked after five minutes, the acting was understated, realistic and really spoke to me. I only hope there are tickets left to go and see the full production.
