Luke Wright: The Toll

Mon 13 Feb 2017

Fresh from supporting John Cooper Clarke on 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.

We took 5 minutes with Luke Wright to find out more about his passion for the spoken word.
