WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Flodden Field, 1513. The scene of Scotland's worst defeats by the English. Amongst the dead lay Scotland's most popular Stewart King and the flower of her nobility. Who was James IV, the man who led his countrymen on that sorrowful day? Was he just the fourth monarch from a family with little imagination regarding Christian names, or was he a heroic, talented, charismatic king with a fascination for women, alchemy, impressive cannons, big ships and metal underwear? Were his "three steps into England" a madcap, ill-considered, naive adventure, destined to end in disaster? Or was he driven to it by the French, and having suffered relentless provocation by the arrogant Henry VIII?

With creative and quirky storytelling interwoven with a witty selection of songs, IDEOMS will attempt to dispel the resulting 500 year-old inferiority complex... provided nobody objects! Running time: 1hr 15mins (no interval). Age 12+
