James III: The True Mirror
The third part of Rona Munro's The James Plays trilogy, James III: The True Mirror, like the King himself, is colourful and unpredictable, turning its attention to the women at the heart of the royal court.
Charismatic, cultured, and obsessed with grandiose schemes that his nation can ill afford, James III is by turns loved and loathed. Scotland thunders dangerously close to civil war, but its future may be decided by James’ resourceful and resilient wife, Queen Margaret of Denmark. Her love and clear vision can save a fragile monarchy and rescue a struggling people.
The James Plays premiered at the Edinburgh International Festival in August 2014, before transferring to the National Theatre, London, in a co-production with the National Theatre of Scotland.
