Juliette Burton: Butterfly Effect presented by makin projects in association with Andrew Roach Talent
Thursday 24th January 7.30pm
Tickets £12, TheatreCards £10.50
Following total sold-out runs at Edinburgh Fringe 2015, 2016 and 2017, award-winning comedian Juliette Burton embarks on her first UK tour with her critically-acclaimed docu-comedy in which she investigates the power of kindness. Most of us find it hard enough being kind to ourselves - let alone others. So is being nice outdated? Or can small acts of kindness have big effects?
Join Juliette as she finds out whether kindness holds the power to change lives, cure mental health conditions, make friends, restore hope, dispel despair, end poverty and even defeat death. It's a tall order for a comedy show but when it comes to entertainment, Juliette is fearless! It's kind of her thing. Would you #DareToBeKind?
As seen on The One Show (BBC One), This Morning (ITV) and BBC at the Edinburgh Festivals (BBC iPlayer).
