Description

A new show from James featuring his captivating mix of theatre, comedy and music. The remarkable, uplifting and hilarious story of a 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 and about the old lady's last wish: to get high once before she died. Uplifting, big hearted and hilarious, this is James first new show following his sell-out Songs of Friendship trilogy.

British Theatre (5/5 stars) 42 days ago

He gives us a wonderful endorphin rush with his words and that classic music. Highly recommended.
