Staging the Scottish Renaissance Court

Sir David Lyndsay’s Ane Satyre of the Thrie Estaitis is the most important, and most powerful, pre-modern play produced in Scotland. In June 2013 it was performed in its entirety by a professional company for the first time in over 450 years at Linlithgow Palace.

About the project

Led by Professor Greg Walker, this project brought together academics, theatre professionals and staff of Historic Scotland to stage Sir David Lyndsay’s epic Renaissance drama Ane Satyre of the Thrie Estaitis.

Project outcomes

The main outcome of the project are the productions themselves, and the stimulus that these will provide for further research.
