We're delighted to have designed and directed puppetry for the James Plays for the National Theatre of Scotland, National Theatre of Great Britain. and the Edinburgh International Festival. We've created and directed puppetry for James II, the middle play in the trilogy of new plays written by Rona Munro and directed by NTS Artistic Director Laurie Sansom with set and costume designs by Jon Bausor.

The plays were presented at the Edinburgh International Festival in August 2014 and will play at the Olivier Theatre in London from September 2014. An ensemble cast play in all three shows and manipulate the puppets, designed by Mervyn Millar and made by Tracy Waller and Paul Vincett (of Stitches and Glue).
