James Rowland, Learning to Fly 2022

Learning to Fly

THU 20th Oct. | Full £12 | Conc. £8 | Age 14+

A new show from James Rowland featuring his captivating mix of theatre, comedy and music.

LEARNING TO FLY sees James tell the story of a remarkable friendship he made when he was a lonely, unhappy teenager with the scary old lady who lived in the spooky house on his street.

It’s about connection, no matter what the obstacles; about love’s eternal struggle with time; about music and its ability to heal.

It’s also about her last wish: to get high once before she dies.

Uplifting, big hearted and hilarious, this show is James’ first since his acclaimed Songs of Friendship trilogy.

**** ‘A master storyteller’


 ***** ‘Joyous… flooded with love’


 **** ‘Thrilling… one mighty, passionate epic’


**** ‘Captivating… a generous, deepening hymn to friendship’
