Ruby Wax

Theatre Royal, Brighton, Sunday, May 19

In this brand spanking new show, entertainer Ruby Wax is going to teach you how to be human.

That may seem like a tough task, after all what is being human?

But if anyone can do it then it’s Ruby.

In particular the show will focus on the rise of technology and how this ever-growing automated world has changed who and what we are as beings.

Ruby was awarded an OBE for her services to mental health in the Honorary British Awards to Foreign Nationals in 2015.

American Idiot

Congress Theatre, Eastbourne, Tuesday, May 21 – Saturday, May 25

Green Day are one of the most popular punk bands around and have been for more than 30 years.

Their smash album American Idiot proved so huge that a musical has been touring based on its 13-song track list.

This show is plenty of fun and if you like Green Day’s music the backing band are brilliant.

Having already wowed at Theatre Royal, the crew are back in Sussex.

Mix in a decent storyline and you’ve got a show that will have you hooked and headbanging.
