On 3 April 1603 King James gave a speech at the High Kirk in St. Giles' in Edinburgh before he traveled off to London to claim the throne of England.
It could be said that he did not help the matter of union with his management style, and his belief in the divine right of kings. He had several confrontations with his Parliament and never worked effectively with them on just about any issue.
But at the moment of his accession to the throne of England, he had very high hopes.
On 5 April, as he began his journey to London, James must have thought that his future was very bright.
Probably some comedies, to reflect the joyous atmosphere in London, like Comedy of Errors and Two Gentlemen of Verona.
