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.

After bringing A Hundred Different Words for Love to us in 2019, I am so excited to be welcoming James back to the building with his unique and captivating storytelling, charm and humour. I know I’ll be in the audience for this new, highly acclaimed show and I hope to see you there too!
