Wedderburn, James. [note] “One James Wedderburn wrote plays (1540) in the Scottish language. In a tragedy
on the beheading of John the Baptist, he treated the corruptions of
religion severely; and in a comedy,— the History of
Dionysius the Tyrant —he likewise attacked the Papists, which were both
performed at Dundee. He counterfeited also the conjuring of a ghaist.” (Calderwood.) [note] —
