A personal message from Ruby Wax
Owing to the impact of the Covid19 pandemic I must cancel this performance of How To Be Human and sadly will not be able to reschedule it.
This was a difficult decision to take but with so much uncertainty was the most sensible option for all.
I hope to be back on the road with a brand new show in the future when it is safe to do so.

Based on her bestselling book, Ruby’s new show How To Be Human answers every question you’ve ever had about evolution, thoughts, emotions, the body, addictions, relationships, sex, kids, the future and compassion.

We can’t stop the future from arriving, no matter what drugs we’re on.

But even if nearly every part of us becomes robotic, mechanical fingers crossed we’ll still have our minds.

Hopefully we’ll use them for things like compassion, instead of just chasing what’s ‘better’ like a hamster on a wheel. If we can do that, we’re on the yellow brick road to happiness.

This show is the follow up to Ruby’s sell out shows Sane New World and Frazzled and incorporates what she discovered whilst writing her latest book with monk Gelong Thubten and neuroscientist Ash Ranpura.

Outrageously witty and smart, blending brilliant comedy and insightful life lessons, How To Be Human is the show you need to help you upgrade your mind as much as you’ve upgraded your iPhone.

Please note that Gelong Thubten and Ash Ranpura will not be appearing at this show.

  • This show has been rescheduled from Thurs 4 June 2020.

Her words are straight up, we learn accessible contextual facts and her delivery is honest and hilarious. It’s a winning formula
