After 4 years, Ruby Wax returns to stage, following her critically acclaimed, sell out tour, How To Be HumanA stage adaptation of her upcoming book, set for release 11th May 2023. Renowned for her comedy, her fearless approach to tackling mental well-being, and her ability to make audiences laugh and cry in equal measure. I’m Not As Well As I Thought I Was, is set to be Ruby’s rawest, darkest, funniest and most compelling stage show yet.  Tickets go on general sale Friday 10th March at 10am via
In 2022, Ruby Wax went on a search to find meaning. She booked a series of potentially life-changing journeys. In the Dominican Republic, she went swimming with humpback whales; she joined a Christian monastery; in Greece, she worked in a refugee camp; in California, she did a silent 30-day mindfulness retreat.

The search to find meaning was about to take her in a different direction, no longer journeying in the outside world but within her own mind, and this inner journey would turn out to be the most life-changing journey of all.“The original idea behind this show was based on the extreme journeys that I wanted to take in order to find an antidote to living a frazzled life. Along the way I wanted to find meaning, peace, happiness – the stuff we’re all chasing. However, after some transcendent experiences, I ended up in a mental institution. Obviously, I didn’t find what I was looking for.”

Directed by writer and an Olivier Award-winning director Clare Lizzimore, I’m Not as Well as I Thought I Was, will see Ruby pushing boundaries, and making her mark as one of the most important voices in mental health today.
