The Buddug James Jones Collective
UK / Wales
Created by Jesse Briton, Buddug James Jones
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
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
