Comedian bringing her biggest tour to Atkinson theatre
FOLLOWING sell-out shows around the country, and a month-long run at Leicester Square Theatre in London, the comedian, author and campaigner Ruby Wax will return to the stage this summer and autumn performing a further 22 dates of her one-woman show Frazzled.
This will be her biggest tour to date and she will be at The Atkinson in Southport on Thursday, November 16.
The show will be an opportunity to come and join Ruby Wax for an evening to explore a scientific solution to modern problems: mindfulness, based on her latest bestselling book, A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled. The ultimate guide to saner living: Ruby gives a tour of the mind – how to use it, not lose it.
Ruby Wax is a much loved U.S. born comedy-actor-writer of incredibly successful books and TV shows including script editor of “Absolutely Fabulous”.
She has a Master’s degree in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy from Oxford University. She said: “So far this year I've hugely enjoyed performing my new show “Frazzled” at the Leicester Square Theatre in London and at theatres around the UK. I’m delighted that we’re extending the run this autumn. This is your passport to saner living. I might not be sane myself but I do a pretty good imitation.”
Arriving in Britain from the United States in 1977, Ruby Wax began her acting career with the Royal Shakespeare Company. She went on to write and perform in her own popular television programmes, and was script editor on all series of Absolutely Fabulous. Since then, Ruby has campaigned tirelessly to raise awareness about mental health issues, including speaking at Downing Street to raise money for neuroscience research.
Ruby Wax has become a leading speaker on mental issues including appearances at The Home Office, MI5, Apple, Goldman Sachs, KPMG, Merril Lynch, Bank of America, Downing Street, the House of Lords, Google, The Cabinet-Director Generals and TEDGlobal 2012, plus various UK National Health Trusts and charities.
