An Instinct for Kindness - Chris Larner - Trafalgar Studios
Seabright Productions present An Instinct for Kindness, written and performed by Chris Larner, which opens at the Trafalgar Studio 2 Theatre, 11 April 2012, following previews from 10 April - running 3 weeks to 28 April 2012.
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 moving, bittersweet 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.
It is directed by Hannah Eidinow with lighting by James Smith.
