It's 1567. James Melville is an intelligent, charismatic and skilled diplomat and also one of the most loyal servants of Mary Stuart, the troubled Queen of Scots. It's a time of political turmoil, and the shocking crimes he has witnessed have shaken him.

Now he needs to decide who's guilty, who's innocent, and who is too dangerous to accuse. Change is coming, but at what price?

Mary is an explosive political thriller, and part of Rona Munro's breathtaking theatrical exploration of Scottish history. It is the sixth instalment of The James Plays Cycle which began with James I, II and III, performed by National Theatre of Scotland, including a run at the National Theatre in London, and which won the Evening Standard and Writers' Guild of Great Britain Awards in 2014, and James IV, co-produced by Raw Material and Capital Theatres in association with National Theatre of Scotland, in 2022.

Mary received its world premiere at Hampstead Theatre, London, also in 2022, directed by Roxana Silbert.
