About James V: Katherine

A Raw Material & Capital Theatres Co-production

James V: Katherine

"If a young woman made you smile, you wouldny want to see her set on fire, would you?"

Katherine is a nineteen-year-old woman on trial in the King’s court, with only her quick wit as defence against execution.

James V: Katherine is a dramatic interpretation of key events during a turbulent time in Scotland’s history, events that did happen and did change Scotland forever. But this is also a love story…

Rona Munro’s renowned James Plays - the theatrical series set during the reigns of Scotland’s generations of Stewart kings - have entertained audiences on main stages since 2014, and now, this latest standalone episode tours to theatres, town halls and arts centres across the country. Experience this epic tale presented as an up-close-and-intimate performance.
