RUBY WAX – Lost It!Theatre on the Bay
At some point in our lives, 1 in 4 of us will be affected by mental illness … bring 3 friends!
Ruby Wax had it all – career, dream house, husband, kids, so when was the moment she realised she was the 1 in 4? Somewhere between painting her kitchen beige (again) and realising she didn’t own a life manual or comprehend the contents of a children’s party bag.
In this acerbic, honest and sometimes dark show, Ruby Wax discusses the toxins of our time - envy, fame, television, the insatiable drive to win, getting rich, getting the perfect body, marriage, kids, career and, above all, staying busy while looking like you're having a nice day.
This is why we all, at one point in our lives, feel like we're about to go under or, in Ruby's case, fall off a cliff.

LOST IT! is the show that gives you the chance to explore the ups and downs of mental illness, its stigmas and the freedom you discover when you share the darkest moments of your life.
