Ruby Wax: Sane New World - at the Octagon Yeovil this month

Comments (0)

Ruby Wax – comedian, writer, mental health campaigner – continues touring the UK with her one-woman show RUBY WAX: SANE NEW WORLD: THE TOUR this autumn. Ruby has based this new show on her number one bestselling book Sane New World: Taming the Mind, which has enjoyed worldwide success since publication in 2013.

RUBY WAX: SANE NEW WORLD: THE TOUR will help us understand why we sabotage our own sanity and provides a manual on how to survive the 21st century, using Ruby’s knowledge from her recent Masters Degree in mindfulness-based cognitive therapy at Oxford University spiked with comedy.

Why we need a ‘manual’…

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

Using her signature humour, Ruby gives a tour of the brain and how to tame it: “We know so much about how the world works - but so little about our how our own minds work. It’s like having a Ferrari on top of your head but no one gave you the keys.”


Ruby Wax will be at the Octagon Theatre, Yeovil on Thursday 25th September.
