February 2, 2010


Comedienne Ruby Wax is to perfrom two shows at a private Birmingham psychiatric hospital.

The 56-year-old American, who has suffered with severe depression, will bring her Live From The Priory night to Edgbaston?s Woodbourne Priory for two dates this month.

A third of the audience of 50 have so far been taken up by out-patients and the rest by staff.

Ms Wax spent five days in The Priory in London after a breakdown following the birth of her third child, Marina, in 1993.

The hospital provides 43 beds and most people are treated for anxiety, stress and depression as well as addiction and eating disorders.
