Following the unprecedented success of his first stage play, What I Learned From Johnny Bevan, we are delighted to welcome Luke Wright back to Shrewsbury, to perform poems from his fabulous new collection, The Toll.
The poems in The Toll visit the flat-roofed pubs and half bought couches of Brexit Britain as it struggles with doubt, duty and half-cut nights spent shouting impotently at Question Time on TV. Wright’s poetry ranges from the laugh out loud funny to the tear-inducingly poignant and back again, as he effortlessly takes his audience with him on the ride switching emotional gears without missing a beat. Luke makes poetry accessible, normal even.
“Timely, patriotic, touching and consistently funny.” Scotsman
“A rip-roaring raconteur, evoking a Larkin-esque sense of commuter belt ennui” Metro
