JAMES V: KATHERINE

18 May 2024

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 Hamilton is a nineteen-year-old woman facing arrest and 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 play filled with hidden histories, deft comedy and a secret love story between two young women.

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. Now, this latest standalone episode tours to theatres, town halls and arts centres across the country, in a co-production between Raw Material and Capital Theatres, directed by Orla O’Loughlin (Enough Of Him, What Girls Are Made Of). Experience this epic tale presented as an up-close-and-intimate performance.

Written by RONA MUNRO

Directed by ORLA O’LOUGHLIN

Lighting Designer: DEREK ANDERSON

Composer/Sound Designer: DANNY KRASS

Cast: Sean Connor (River City, MoorcroftCatriona Faint (Dracula: Mina’s Reckoning, Enough Of Him), Benjamin Osugo (Alföld, A Christmas Carol) and Alyth Ross (Dalgliesh).

Lovely wee cafe with amazing service. Been here 3 times now and always notice how friendly and upbeat the staff are. The coffee and cake is top notch also. Will definitely be back the next time I head to Dunkeld!
