An Instinct for Kindness by Chris Larner - Pleasance
Seabright Productions presents An Instinct for Kindness, written by and starring Chris Larner, directed by Hannah Eidinow, at the Pleasance Stagespace, in north London, from 20 to 24 March 2013 (This show replaces the cancelled Vincent River).
In 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. This show reflects on the circumstances, morality and humanity surrounding the journey. Through a candid, poignant and sometimes comic performance, Chris explores both the profound personal implications and the wider ethical issues that surround the contentious topic of assisted suicide.
