★★★★★ - Spy In The Stalls
"[Jones] conjures up three-dimensional scenarios with a winning blend of physical agility and comic flair"
In a dystopian future where Wales is reduced to a tourist leisure park. Ffion Jones, a hapless tour-guide, wants to start a revolution, thrusting her floppy leek into the air.
Once famed for coal, copper and steel production, Wales’ industry has now ground to a halt. All that’s left to sell is 'Welsh pride' and even that is quickly drying up at the hands of business tycoons Bevan, Bevan, Bevan and co. Will Ffion sell her soul to be the next ‘face of Wales’ or will she summon the courage to revolt and listen to the strange trouser-less child that appears in her dreams?
A look into the gross extremes of stereotyping, individualism and the future of sheep themed jokes.
Written and performed by Ffion Jones, a Welsh actor, writer and comedy improviser. Ffion's debut play, Ugly Lovely, received rave reviews, has been read on Broadway and is currently being developed into a six part TV series.
