An Instinct for Kindness

In November 2010, Chris Larner accompanied his chronically ill ex-wife to Dignitas in Switzerland.  He returned home with an empty wheelchair and a story to tell.

This extraordinary solo performance has been acclaimed by press and public alike. With the contentious issue of assisted suicide currently being debated in Parliament, this is an urgently relevant piece of theatre. The production premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe 2011, where it won the Scotsman Fringe First Award and has played a West End run in 2012.

Powerfully moving and gripping, Larner’s show is by turns funny and heart-rending. His brilliant script and performance draw us inexorably into the haunting, human story of a woman making the ultimate decision about her own life. 

“A wonderfully subtle and deceptively understated performance. This is story-telling of a very high order.” **** THE TIMES
