What I Learned From Johnny Bevan
Nick has fallen out of love with London and his life as a journalist. Forced to review the launch of URBANIA, a new inner-city festival, he starts to remember his shattered friendship with Johnny Bevan, the whip-smart, mercurial kid from an Essex council estate. Back at uni Johnny saved Nick from living his father’s life. Twenty years later, can he save him all over again? Written and performed in visceral, punchy verse by Luke Wright, with a score by Ian Catskilken from Art Brut, What I Learned From Johnny Bevan is a breath-taking poetic monologue about friendship, class and a really bad idea for a festival.

Decadent boozehound Luke Wright would love to spend his life flouncing around looking fabulous, but back in rural Suffolk he’s got the school run to do. Naval-gazing is all very well, but other people can be magic. In visceral verse, Wright tells stories of ordinary people having extraordinary moments, then sticks a “champagne-rinsed rococo boot” into the swines who run things.
