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

WHAT I LEARNED FROM JOHNNY BEVAN
WINNER Fringe First Award for new writing || WINNER The Stage Award for acting excellence
A story of shattered friendship, class ceilings, and the hollow reality of the New Labour dream. Luke Wright delivers a multi award winning hurricane of a performance. With humour and humanity he takes British politics head on, challenging the rise of New Labour and David Cameron, and the abandonment of those left behind.

“Pulsating piece of poetic storytelling” ★★★★ Lyn Gardner, 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
