FRANKIE VAH
We all want something to believe in. It’s 1987 and Frankie Vah gorges on love, radical politics, and skuzzy indie stardom. But can he keep it all down? Following the multi-award-winning What I Learned From Johnny Bevan, Luke Wright’s second verse play deals with love, loss, and belief, against a backdrop of skuzzy indie venues and 80s politics. Expect frenetic guitars, visceral verse, and a Morrissey-sized measure of heartache. Written and performed in deft verse by Fringe First & Stage Award for Acting Excellence winner, Luke Wright. ‘Pulsating, poetic storytelling’ The Guardian

Down The Pub With Luke Wright
Luke Wright is a spit and sawdust wordsmith. He tells inventive and engaging stories, documenting 21st century British life with wit, humanity and panache. He’ll make you laugh, he’ll make you cry, he might even get a round in. Come and see one of Britain’s most engaging performers where he belongs, spinning a set of his best yarns down the boozer. “Wright’s full-throated revery is spell-binding.” The Daily Mirror "Ripe for discovery and mass adulation.”The Mail on Sunday “Pulsating poetic story-telling.” The Guardian “Visceral, poignant and riotously funny.” The Scotsman “Cool poems.” Patti Smith “He’s young, good-looking, and talented. Naturally I hate him.” John Cooper Clarke “Completely brilliant. I came out unable to speak like an idiot.” Mark Steel

THE TOLL
After the Fringe First winning success of What I Learned From Johnny Bevan, Luke Wright is back to subject the English language to a series of degrading new tricks, all for your amusement. The poems in The Toll tour the flat-roofed pubs and half-bought couches of Brexit Britain. They struggle with doubt, duty and a score of half-cut nights spent shouting impotently at Question Time. Spend an evening with a raconteur at the top of his game, as he spits out visceral, inventive verse that sweats, bleeds and sings. “Visceral, poignant, and riotously funny.” Scotsman “A rip-roaring raconteur, evoking a Larkin-esque sense of commuter belt ennui” Metro “Cool poems.” Patti Smith
