Luke Wright

Luke Wright

Fresh from supporting John Cooper Clarke on his UK tour, and hot on the heels of his multi-award-winning debut What I Learned From Johnny Bevan, poet, performer and broadcaster Luke Wright returns with a stunning new spoken word show. 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.
