James V: Katherine

Rona Munro’s renowned James Plays continue with this fifth standalone production, presenting an up close and intimate performance, with focussed, raw storytelling.

James V: Katherine

About James V: Katherine

Directed by Orla O’Loughlin, James V: Katherine places a lesser known female historical figure front and centre in the story.

Katherine Hamilton is nineteen. She’s a respectable young married woman, but she also has a secret love she’s trying to forget. When her brother, Patrick, is executed for preaching ideas forbidden by the church, Katherine is put on trial for her life too.

In a packed courtroom, watched by most of Edinburgh and the cynical, young King James V, Katherine fights for survival. Struggling to claim innocence, watch as the hidden love between her and a young woman, challenges her to decide what is really worth living and dying for.

This play is based on real historical figures and is a speculative interpretation of key events at the very start of the Scottish Reformation, events which did happen and did change Scotland forever.

Ages 12+
