The Lowry has so much on offer that sometimes we stick to the things we know we like. In the New Year try being bolder and more curious-er than ever before.

The James Plays | Sat 23 April – Sun 24 April

James II by Manuel Harlan Image 11

James I, James II and James III are a modern cycle of history plays by award-winning playwright Rona Munro. This vividly-imagined trilogy brings to life three generations of Stewart Kings who ruled Scotland in the tumultuous fifteenth century and represents an unprecedented co-production by the National Theatre of Scotland, the National Theatre of Great Britain and the Edinburgh International Festival.

Each play stands alone as a unique vision of a country tussling with its past and future; viewed together they create a complex and compelling narrative on Scottish culture and nationhood. An ensemble of 20 actors takes the audience through a rarely-explored period of history with playful wit and boisterous theatricality.
