Set in Flint, Michigan in 1936 during the great depression, Bud, Not Buddy tells the story of Bud, a ten-year-old boy how is sure about two things: he wants to find his father and he is not called Buddy. With only one clue, a flyer advertising Herman E. Calloway and his jazz band, Bud set off on an epic journey of discovery with his trusty suitcase in tow. The play is set to the soulful sounds of a full jazz band.
