James II: Day of The Innocents by Rona Munro

A violent royal playground is depicted in James II: a terrifying arena of sharp teeth and long knives.

James II becomes the prize in a vicious game between Scotland’s most powerful families. Crowned when only six, abandoned by his mother and separated from his sisters, the child king is little more than a puppet. There is only one friend he can trust: William, the future Earl of Douglas.

The ensemble cast includes Jamie Sives (Game of Thrones) and Sofie Gråbøl (The Killing).
