James Rowland — Piece of Work

From Land’s End to Llandudno, Ipswich to Inverness, 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 in physically affect 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.

Using his captivating mix of storytelling, comedy and music, James’ remarkable road trip will delight and surprise. PIECE OF WORK is James’ new show following his sellout success of LEARNING TO FLY and the FRIENDSHIP TRILOGY.

Contains references to suicide and mental illness
