Three kings and our fine city’s castle

The actors playing the three Scottish monarchs in The James Plays paid a visit to our fine city's castle ahead of the epic historical trilogy opening at Norwich Theatre Royal tomorrow.
The three shows, designed to be watched all in one day, take audiences on a journey through 15th century Scotland, with each show dedicated to the reign of a different Stewart king.
James I is played by Steven Miller, James II by Andrew Rothney, and James III by Matthew Pidgeon.
When asked about the trilogy, Matthew said: 'It's exciting, it's funny and although it's about a period of history, it's very modern in many ways.'
Andrew added: 'To see all three shows in one day is a unique experience and one that you won't forget for a long time.'
