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

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
