James II is part of Rona Munro’s trilogy The James Plays and runs alongside James I and James III. Exhilarating and vividly imagined, they bring to life three generations of Stewart kings who ruled Scotland in the tumultuous 15th century.
The production charts the story of James II, who becomes the prize in a vicious game between Scotland’s most powerful families. Crowned at the age of six-years-old having been abandoned by his mother and separated from his sisters, the young king is little more than a puppet. But there is one person in the world he can trust: William, the future Earl of Douglas.
