Piece of Work

James has been touring his storytelling theatre shows for half his adult life. This tour was different though. Returning home after his first stint away, he received a letter that exploded his life, and the tour became a search: for the person who sent it, for a sense of where he comes from, and to maybe save a life.

In PIECE OF WORK James explores how the landscapes we exist within effect the way we think and feel; how searching for something is an end in itself, regardless of whether the search is successful. It’s about our sense of home, and the hope that makes our lives liveable.

Featuring James’ captivating mix of storytelling, music and comedy (as well as Shakespeare’s Hamlet) this show follows the critically acclaimed LEARNING TO FLY which toured the UK following a sell-out run in Edinburgh. Hilarious and heart breaking this remarkable road trip will delight and surprise.
