The American actor and author shares her optimistic predictions for the future of humanity.

The American actor and author shares her optimistic predictions for the future of humanity, envisioning a race of compassionate cyborgs.

At one time, the iconic comedian from Illinois was best known for her untamed hair, unapologetically frank questions and wild humour. More recently, Ruby Wax focus has turned to mental health. In her latest one-woman show, based on the bestselling book, she offers a witty and honest commentary on the state of our minds with two special guests: monk Gelong Thubten and neuroscientist Ash Ranpura.

We can't stop the future from arriving, no matter what drugs we're on. But even if nearly every part of us becomes robotic, we'll still, fingers crossed, have our minds, which hopefully, we'll be able to use for things like compassion, rather than chasing what's 'better' and if we can do that we're on the yellow brick road to happiness. This show will be the follow up to her sell out shows 'Sane New World' and 'Frazzled'.
