AN INSTINCT FOR KINDNESS
Friday 18th October 2019 - 8:00 pm
In November 2010, Chris Larner accompanied his ex-wife Allyson to Dignitas in Switzerland. He returned with an empty wheelchair and a story to tell.
First performed in 2011 at the Edinburgh Festival, this brilliant, bittersweet one-man show explores the circumstances, morality and humanity of a woman driven to make the ultimate decision about her life. By turns funny and heart-breaking, An Instinct for Kindness won a coveted Fringe First at Edinburgh, an Argus Angel at the Brighton festival, has toured both nationally and internationally, and has garnered praise from both reviewers and pundits alike.
Intensely moving Independent
A wonderfully subtle and deceptively understated performance. The meaning of the title, revealed at the end, is immense and redemptive. The Times
A beautiful, thought-provoking and moving production Whatsonstage.com
