Ruby Wax's Losing It set for limited run at the Duchess
Date Posted: 11/07/11
Ruby Wax is to hot-foot it to the West End this summer with her hit show Losing It following a spell at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Those in London theatre breaks will be able to catch the show at the Duchess theatre for a very limited run between August 31st and October 1st 2011.
Wax, who suffered from bi-polar disorder, explores the stigma which still surrounds mental illness across the UK in her show with the help of music from Judith Owen.
Losing It previously ran at the Menier Chocolate Factory in the West End between February 15th and March 19th, and May 17th to June 19th, this year.
"In the first half Ruby Wax, accompanied by singer-pianist Judith Owen, offers a confessional cabaret about the conditions that led to her mental illness. After the interval the women engage in a dialogue with the audience," the Guardian's theatre critic, Michael Billington, noted following one of the show's February performances.
