An Instinct for Kindness Synopsis

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. It now plays the West End for three weeks only.

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.

'Fantastic. A show that reminds us that how we die is as important as how we live.' ****
The Guardian

'Intensely moving. Larner relates it all with a clear-eyed, occasionally funny, occasionally horrifying lack of sentimentality.' ****
The Independent
'A wonderfully subtle and deceptively understated performance. This is story-telling of a very high order.' ****
The Times
