LEARNING TO FLY
Learning to Fly by James Rowland
‘A riveting, remarkable hour of theatre…‘ ★★★★★ The Guardian
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 brand new show is touring following a sell out run at the Edinburgh festival.
Made with 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).
