A ONCE in a lifetime opportunity to see a unique play performed for the first time in over 400 years graces Linlithgow this summer.

‘A Satire of the Three Estates’ will play at Linlithgow Palace Peel for the first time in its original format since 1540 by professional actors on June 7, 8 and 9 from 2-8pm (including interval).

Alison Stalker, assistant events manager at Historic Scotland, said: “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to see Sir David Lyndsay’s epic play of Scottish 
politics and reform.”

There will also be hour long interlude performances based on the original play performed in the Great Halls at Linlithgow Palace and Stirling Castle on Tuesday, June 11, at Linlithgow Palace and Thursday, June 13, at Stirling Castle.

Alison added: “This is a unique chance to experience the production interlude, an experimental drama which will attempt to reconstruct the ‘lost’ Linlithgow Interlude of 1540 using surviving letters and fragments of original drama.’’
