Odd theatre moment 1,407: myself and a complete stranger, sitting beside each other in silence as the show ended, afraid to move in case we burst into tears. Which is probably all you need to know about An Instinct For Kindness. Last year Chris Larner accompanied his wife Alison to Dignitas, a Swiss euthanasia clinic. Larner’s performance, flitting between himself and Alison, is gutteral not just in its theme but in its detail: Alison’s desperate attempts to stand up, the unending paperwork of the application process, even the discarded wheelchairs and canes at the clinic itself. A gut-wrenching, necessary education.
