Back once again at The School of Life, after multiple sold-out events, join Ruby Wax for a light-hearted and consoling look at the quirks and compulsions that make us entirely, forgivably human.

Long Copy
Back once again at The School of Life, after multiple sold-out events, join Ruby Wax for a light-hearted and consoling look at the quirks and compulsions that make us entirely, forgivably human.

Ever since her soul-baring 2010 stage show Losing It, Ruby Wax has been one of the most prominent campaigning voices in the UK when it comes to dispelling taboos around mental health. A lifelong sufferer from depression, she has been as candid as possible about her experiences of living with the illness – hoping that her honest revelations will help others to feel less alone if they too are struggling with a frequently misunderstood condition.
Having already explored ways to help us feel more calm and more content, she has now focused her attention on an even bigger question which surrounds our lives: in a world that is increasingly online and beholden to technology, what is it that makes us truly human? With the help of a monk and a neuroscientist she has set about tackling some of the thorniest questions which confront us in increasingly complex, distracting and disquieting times.

Ruby will be joined on stage by Professor Tanya Byron – a clinical psychologist who specialises in working with children and adolescents – and together they will discuss everything from evolution to addictions, negative thought patterns, relationship troubles, sex, children, and the future of our species. Sharing hilarious anecdotes from her own life, alongside insight derived from her two expert advisers, this promises to be an exceptional evening of enquiry, pathos and deeply-felt laughter.
