RUBY WAX - LOSING IT REVIEWS

Reviews of Ruby Wax's Losing It at The Duchess Theatre, London.

At some point in our lives 1 in 4 of us will be affected by mental illness... Bring 3 friends!

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.


RUBY WAX LOSING IT - Press Reviews

★★★★  '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

'Cuttingly hilarious'
whatsonstage

'A theatre show that is warm, funny, inventive. Owen has a hauntingly beautiful voice. The evening is illuminating for those who have no experience of mental ill health and affirming for those who have.'
The Arts Desk


'Losing It is defined by both poignancy and wit, proving both a touching and amusing night out.'
Chortle


'What they modestly fail to mention in the show is that depression and artistic gifts often hang out together. Ruby is captivating and hilarious and Judith Owen's voice so soulful she could induce heartbreak in a pavement. Genius.'
Sally Phillips


'Powerful beautiful stuff'
Annie Lennox


'Judith and Ruby have created something extraordinary. I always knew Ruby was the funniest woman alive, but I never expected this to be so raw and emotional.'
Jennifer Saunders


'Seeing this has restored my faith that I am well on my way to a nervous breakdown'
Paloma Faith


'This is the greatest double act I've ever seen. I thought I ought to remind you that last night you was brilliant. Many thanks for letting me come, watch and admire. It's a snazzy little gem of a show.'
Terry Gilliam
