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.
