James Son of James is a story of accidental heroism, hero worship, sadness, love, power, betrayal and revenge, told through dance, theatre, live song, original music and slapstick. James returns home for his father’s funeral having been away for eleven years. He is late and misses the burial. He becomes embroiled in the lives of ten characters: the local politician, his wife and son, the policeman and his wife, a farmer, a doctor, a merchant, his daughter and a young woman from the East. His arrival awakens the potential for compassion and kindness among the villagers of this small rural village. Yet, over time this hope turns sour, as James becomes the victim of local rivalries, jealousies and fear.
