When Joe was 18 he went to Uganda, a typical Gap-year kid. He whitewater rafted the Nile, taught in orphanages, made lots of friends. Little did he know that one friendship would follow him for ten years all the way back to Manchester and beyond.
Educating Ronnie is the compelling true story of Joe and Ronnie and the faith they put in one another. It's the story of Ronnie asking for help and Joe trying to bridge a 4000-mile gap. Performed by Joe himself to an exhilarating original soundtrack, it explores charity, friendship and how good intentions can easily become guilty burdens.
