Ruby's lesson in How To Be Human

Where: Cheltenham Town Hall

When: Wednesday, September 18, 8pm

Based on her bestselling book, Ruby Wax's new show How To Be Human answers every question you've ever had about evolution, thoughts, emotions, the body, addictions, relationships, sex, kids, the future and compassion.

We can't stop the future from arriving, no matter what drugs we're on. But even if nearly every part of us becomes robotic, mechanical fingers crossed we'll still have our minds.

Hopefully we'll use them for things like compassion, instead of just chasing what's 'better' like a hamster on a wheel. If we can do that, we're on the yellow brick road to happiness.

This show is the follow-up to Ruby's sell-out shows Sane New World and Frazzled and incorporates what she discovered whilst writing her latest book, including finding out about how the mind works with monk Gelong Thubten and learning from neuroscientist Ash Ranpura where everything that makes us 'us' can be found in the brain.

Outrageously witty and smart, blending brilliant comedy and insightful life lessons, How To Be Human is the show you need to help you upgrade your mind as much as you've upgraded your iPhone.

Tickets are available from Cheltenham Town Hall box office or website. This event is for over-14s only.
