Second scratch of my new show:
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.
