SUZI RUFFELL: NOCTURNAL
If you don't have anxiety, I don't think you're concentrating! Suzi is worried about everything – from someone breaking into her flat, to human rights across the globe, to her cat's quality of life – and it's keeping her awake. Following last year's critically acclaimed, sell-out run, this show is not to be missed.
