Your New Favourite Poet hits London

Posted by lukewrightpoet Category: Diary Entries, Poems

I’m taking YOUR NEW FAVOURITE POET to The Leicester Square Theatre in London’s West End. I’m there for 3 weeks, 22 May – 8 June on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. That’s exciting isn’t it? The show starts at 7pm and is 60 mins long. I’ve been touring it all year and it’s pretty nicely refined now.

Right, here’s the blurb. After the blurb is a new song I’ve been working on with Lora Stimson, I like it, hope you do too.


After a 25 date national tour the hit Edinburgh show finally comes to London!

Expect thigh-slapping acerbic wordplay and bawdy bar room ballads as Wright introduces you to a cast of greedy politicians and boozy ne’er-do-wells. Meet Jeremy, the public schoolboy who draws penises on everything; kung-fu fighting French copper Jean-Claude Gendarme; and witness the world’s first b-movie set in Brentwood.

“Wright is a rock’n’roll balladeer in scarlet brogues, a performer who wouldn’t look out of place marching with the Chartists, scratching at London’s underworld with Oscar Wilde or doing guest vocals with The Smiths … Rock’n’roll tour de force of performance poetry” * * * * The List
