Ruby Wax had it all – career, dream house, husband, kids, so when was the moment she realised she was the 1 in 4... Somewhere between painting her kitchen beige (again), realising she didn’t own a life manual or comprehend the contents of a children’s party bag?
Ruby’s acerbic, honest humour and Judith Owen’s touching songs are both poignant and laugh-out-loud funny. This show gives you the chance to explore the ups and downs of mental illness, its stigmas and the freedom you discover when you share the darkest moments of your life.
★★★★ 'a thoughtful, memorable endeavour from a tour de force talent.' - Metro
★★★★ 'The songs, which punctuate Wax's wise-cracking act, are beautifully husky and pertinent.' - Daily Express
'Wax is as splendidly rude, brash, acerbic and outre as you'd expect, but she is also, at times, surprisingly tender, self-deprecating and serious' - The Observer
