If you don’t have anxiety, I don’t think you’re concentrating! Suzi Ruffell 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 stopping her from sleeping.

Following last year’s critically acclaimed, sell-out run, Nocturnal is a show not to be missed.

Some people need stimulants to stay awake, but not our Suzi. Anxiety is better than any amphetamine, and caused by a myriad of things including politics, finding love, her cat’s happiness, the fact that the bloke who lives in the flat below seems a bit of a creep, online trolls, and the good old FOMO – fear of missing out.

All this was caused in no small part by a trip to India, in which Suzi began to question her place in the world, her identity, and religion.

So where, then, is the happy place for a gay girl who went to a catholic school? Is she on the right path, or merely treading water in a cold and hostile world?

Suzi is a talented actor and writer, with one of her sitcoms being nominated for a BAFTA Rocliffe New Writing award, amongst many other television appearances.
