Chris Larner's one man show An Instinct for Kindness, recently nominated for a Whatsonstage.com Award, will return to London later this month with a week-long run at the Pleasance Islington.

The show won a Fringe First Award at its premiere at Pleasance Edinburgh in 2011 before embarking on a UK tour and a season in London's West End in 2012.

Directed by Hannah Eidinow, it charts Larner's experience in 2010 of accompanying his chronically ill ex-wife to Switzerland's Dignitas clinic.

According to press material, "This moving, bittersweet show reflects on the circumstances, morality and humanity surrounding the journey. Through a candid, poignant and sometimes comic performance, Chris explores both the profound personal implications and the wider ethical issues that surround the contentious topic of assisted suicide."

An Instinct for Kindness runs at the Pleasance from 20 to 24 March 2013.
