An Instinct for Kindness at The Courtyard
4:30pm Saturday 19th May 2012 in Theatre & Comedy
IN November 2010, Chris Larner accompanied his chronically ill ex-wife to Switzerland’s Dignitas Clinic. He came home with an empty wheelchair and a story to tell.
In a candid, poignant and sometimes comic performance, Chris explores both the profound personal implications and the wider ethical considerations of the contentious issue of assisted dying, creating a moving, bittersweet show, An Instinct for Kindness, that reflects on the circumstances, morality and humanity surrounding the journey Chris, an actor, writer and director, has made a name for himself in comedy, both at the Edinburgh festival and writing with David Gilbert and for others. An Instinct For Kindness won a Fringe First Award in 2011.
See it at The Courtyard in the Studio Theatre next Thursday, May 24, at 7.45pm. To book, call the box office on 01432 340555
