Based on her bestselling book, Ruby Wax’s new show ‘How to Be Human’ answers every question you’ve ever had about evolution, thoughts, emotions, the body, addictions, relationships, sex, kids, the future and compassion.
This show is the follow-up to Ruby’s sell-out shows ‘Sane New World’ and ‘Frazzled’ and incorporates what she discovered whilst writing her latest book, including finding out about how the mind works with monk Gelong Thubten and learning from neuroscientist Ash Ranpura where everything that makes us ‘us’ can be found in the brain.
Ruby explained, “We can’t stop the future from arriving, no matter what drugs we’re on. But even if nearly every part of us becomes robotic, mechanical fingers crossed we’ll still have our minds. Hopefully we’ll use them for things like compassion, instead of just chasing what’s ‘better’ like a hamster on a wheel. If we can do that, we’re on the yellow brick road to happiness.”
Ruby will be live at The Place on Thursday 14 November at 7.30pm, visit theplacetelford.com for more details or call the box office on 01952 382382.
