    We are delighted to welcome James Rowland back to Tobacco Factory Theatres with his hilarious, uplifting and big hearted new show featuring his captivating mix of storytelling, 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 the old lady’s last wish: to get high once before she dies.

    See early performances of James’ brand new show now before its wider UK tour in 2022.
