★★★★★ (James I) ★★★★ (James II & III)

"Rona Munro’s new trilogy of history plays, about three generations of Stewart kings who governed Scotland in the 15th century, is a towering achievement. Laurie Sansom directs all this with the ebullience of a man who knows he has a modern classic on his hands. The confidence of The James Plays makes them a defining moment in the theatre of this for-the-moment united country."

★★★★

"These are unequivocally plays for today. Throughout Munro skilfully interweaves the personal and the political... Laurie Sansom's production...constantly propels the action forward."
