I believed that Fukayama line: the end of history. But History didn’t end, did it?

Logan Dankworth, columnist and Twitter warrior, grew up romanticising the political turmoil of the 1980s. Now, as the EU Referendum looms he is determined to be in the fray of the biggest political battle for years. Meanwhile, Logan’s wife Megan wants to leave London to better raise their daughter. As tensions rise at home and across the nation, something is set to be lost forever.

The third of Luke Wright’s trilogy of political verse plays looks at trust and privilege in the age of Brexit.

“Human, vulnerable, eminently honest and very, very eloquent. There is some sensational writing in this show, and Wright paces his storytelling like a trainride, quickening to exhilaration, slowing to pathos, and always keeping us with him.” Arifa Akbar, The Guardian (January 2020)

“Raw, rollicking first-person poetry…it is great – a hurtling, headlong hour of storytelling stuffed full of savage satire and astute observations, with the energy of Wright’s delivery surging.” ★★★★ The Stage (May 2020)
