LUKE WRIGHT: FAT DANDY
6.30-730pm - Bowling Green Stage
Fat Dandy is Wright's new alter ego, a bit like Ziggy was for Bowie. Think of him as the Fat White Duke or the Man Who Ate Your Lunch. By turns funny and moving Fat Dandy links at solitude, politics and Wright's dual life as a "paunchy dad" and "jobbing fop" on tour. As well as more personal pieces Fat Dandy is full of Hogarth-esque characters. Meet the cantankerous, cane-swinging Bastard of Bungay, spend half-term with the lonely Science teacher Mr Hooper and cry NOT IN MY NAME with irate residents of Much Harpingon. This is poetry at its most fun and contemporary. Chunky Dory!
