James is currently making his stage debut as Andy in David Dillon’s play, Party, at Above The Stag. From 7th March - 22nd April. 'James is more of a nervous ingénue – initially, at least… an utter delight to witness.' - 5* (Gay Times) ‘James Farley illuminates Andy with such innocence before showing he is more than ready to get down and dirty.’ - 5* (UKTW) ‘The camaraderie of this cast is simply stunning.’ - 5* (Boyz)
