Staging and Representing the Scottish Renaissance Court

‘Staging the Scottish Court’ is a two year, interdisciplinary research project which will stage Sir David Lyndsay’s A Satire of the Three Estates as part of a wider investigation of the Scottish Renaissance and Stewart court and modern images of national identity and the Scottish past.

At the heart of the project will be the first ever full-length production of The Three Estates on the Peel at Linlithgow, in June 2013. There will also be performances in the Great Halls in Linlithgow Palace and Stirling Castle of the ‘lost’ first version of the play, first performed at Linlithgow in 1540.
