The show is co-written and performed with singer-songwriter Judith Owen and has had two successful sell-out runs at the Menier Chocolate Factory this year. With acerbic and honest humour from Wax and Judith Owen's song the show has been described as both poignant and laugh-out loud funny as she explores and shares the ups and downs of mental illness, its stigmas and the darkest moments of life.
In her trademark style, mixing the outspoken diatribe and the comic parade of insecurity, it offers Wax’s world view on society’s malaises, including some very funny material on the vacuity of the celebrity lifestyle. There is an element of the confessional as she owns up to monstrous behaviour in the past.
The West End transfer of Losing It is produced by David Babani (artistic director of the Menier Chocolate Factory), Tom Siracusa and Thelma Holt, in association with Nica Burns and Max Weitzenhoffer.
The show follows the current production of Butley starring Dominic West on until 27th August.
