World Premiere

Learning to Fly

by James Rowland
Edinburgh 2022 and national tour


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 died.


***** 'A riveting, remarkable hour of theatre' The Guardian 

**** 'He delivers his story with grace and self-deprecating humour' The Times 

****'Very funny, disarmingly honest and surprisingly tender' The Scotsman
