Jake Humphrey says:“I am delighted that we are taking High Performance around the country! This is not a live version of a podcast; this is an entirely original theatre production based on the learnings and wisdom from more than 120 of the most high performing people on the planet. I want the audience to leave inspired, uplifted, entertained and ready to find their own version of High Performance. 

“For our opening night to be in Norwich – my home city – where my journey began, is the biggest thrill of all. Walking out on the stage of the Theatre Royal will be surreal for me but I can’t wait for the fine people of the fine city of Norwich to be the first to see the show that we have created with the amazing team at Norwich Theatre.”

Damian Hughesadds: “Muhammad Ali once improvised a poem about his success. ‘Me’, he said, pointing to himself, before pointing directly at his audience, ‘We’. His belief was that success is a collective endeavour. This tour allows the High Performance community to come together, lift each other and share inspiration so each of us can pursue a high performance life, defined on our own terms. I’m excited to meet, to share and to learn why high performance already lies within all of us.”
