An Instinct For Kindness
In November 2010, Chris Larner accompanied his ex-wife Allyson to Dignitas in Switzerland. He returned with an empty wheelchair and a story to tell.
First performed in 2011 at the Edinburgh Festival, this award-winning, bittersweet one-man show explores circumstances, morality and humanity of a woman driven to make the ultimate decision about her life. By turns heart-breaking and surprisingly funny, An Instinct for Kindness has garnered praise from both reviewers and pundits alike.
The performance will be followed by a chat show in the foyer featuring Chris Larner.
