My name is Luke Wright (as should be apparent). I’m a poet, theatre maker and sometime broadcaster. Every year I write a new poetry stage show and schlep it around arts centres, theatres, pubs and festivals. Not, as some claim, because I’m “committed to taking poetry to the people” but because it pays my mortgage. And I love it.
I’ve written and starred in eight solo shows of my poetry. In 2015 I debuted my first play – What I Learned From Johnny Bevan at The Edinburgh Fringe. It won a Fringe First award for new writing, a load of four and five star reviews, and landed me The Stage Award For Acting Excellence. Johnny Bevan will tour in 2016. Penned in the Margins will publish it as a book in February 2016.
