Ruby Wax: I’m Not As Well As I Thought I Was

Friday 20th September

  • Description

  • Cast & Crew

After a complete sell-out first run in 2023, Ruby Wax’s rawest, darkest, funniest and most compelling stage show yet announces brand new dates for 2024, thanks to enormous demand.

The original idea behind this show was based on the extreme journeys that I wanted to take in order to find an antidote to living a frazzled life. Along the way I wanted to find meaning, peace, happiness – the stuff we’re all chasing. However, after some transcendent experiences, I ended up in a mental institution. Obviously, I didn’t find what I was looking for.

I’m Not As Well As I Thought I Was is Ruby’s first tour show in four years following her critically acclaimed, sell-out tour, How To Be Human.
