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.
Created with the the generous support of Arts Council England, Arts at the Old Fire Station (Oxford), The Spring (Havant), The Attenborough (Leicester) and Tobacco Factory Theatres (Bristol).
