A new show by James Rowland
Attic is delighted to return to live performance in a collaboration with acclaimed writer, storyteller and performer James Rowland.
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.
Uplifting, big hearted and hilarious, these previews are the first chance to see a new show that will tour the UK in 2022.
