Piece of WorkTue 5 December | 7.30pm
This show follows James’ critically acclaimed ‘Learning to Fly’ which toured the UK following a sell out run in Edinburgh, and features James’s captivating mix of storytelling, music and comedy.
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.
