Comedian and mental health campaigner Ruby Wax will appear at Theatre Royal Wakefield next month.

She recently grauated with a Masters degree after studying Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy.

And her studies provide some of the material for the show.

Ruby said: “We know so much about how the world works - but so little about how our own minds work. It’s like having a Ferrari on top of your head but no one gave you the keys.

“We are not equipped for this century, it’s too hard, too fast, and too full of fear; we just don’t have the bandwith.

“Our brains can’t take so much information in a world where we’re bombarded by bad news and force-fed information. I can just about take in the weather then I’m exhausted. You open a newspaper, everyone’s dead. We’re only supposed to know what our neighbour is up to; if the woman next door to you is having sex with the man next door to her we need to know; but four doors down and it’s none of our business.”

‘Ruby Wax: Sane New World - The Tour’ arrives at Theatre Royal Wakefield on Thursday, March 20 at 7.30pm.
