The Buddug James Jones Collective
UK / Wales

Created by Jesse Briton, Buddug James Jones and
Max Mackintosh

In the summer of 1989, in a quiet corner of Glan Gwili hospital, a farmer's wife gives birth to a baby girl named Buddug James Jones. In this moment she became heir to the family's 300-year-old farming dynasty.

22 years later, and Bud is restless. Desperate to leave the James Jones historic home she wrestles with the knowledge that her departure will sound the death knoll for the family business. 

Leaving generations of James Jones tradition behind her as she sets out alone into the big smoke...

A story of one woman's struggle to escape and let go told with live music and welsh cakes.

Performed by David Grubb, Buddug James Jones and Max Mackintosh 

Winner of 'Best Production in the English Language' at the Wales Theatre Awards 2015.
