RUBY Wax will visit Bournemouth as part of a major UK tour this year.

The actress, comedian and writer will call at the Pavilion Theatre on Wednesday, June 5.

The date is one of more than 30 to be added for what has been described as Ruby’s “most raw and funny stage show yet”.

Based on her bestselling book of the same name, I’m Not As Well As I Thought I Was stage show sees Ruby reflect back on a series of life-changing journeys she undertook in search of meaning.

These include swimming with humpback whales; embarking on a 30-day silent retreat in California; joining a Christian monastery and ended up taking her in a very different direction.

After ten years, Ruby’s depression resurfaced, and at the start of 2022 she was admitted to a mental health clinic.

Ruby said: “The original idea behind this show was based on the extreme journeys that I wanted to take in order to find an antidote to living a frazzled life.

“Along the way I wanted to find meaning, peace, happiness – the stuff we’re all chasing. However, after some transcendent experiences, I ended up in a mental institution. Obviously, I didn’t find what I was looking for.”
