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.


Age guidance 14+


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).
