Big hearted, tender and hilarious.

James Rowland tells 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 dies.

Uplifting, big hearted and hilarious, this brand new show is touring following a sell out run at the Edinburgh festival.
