Luke Wright: The Toll
After the Fringe First winning success of What I Learned From Johnny Bevan, Luke Wright is back to subject the English language to a series of degrading new tricks, all for your amusement.
Featuring a selection of poems from The Toll (Penned in the Margins, 2017) this show tours the flat-roofed pubs and half-bought couches of Brexit Britain. It struggles 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.
“Visceral, poignant, and riotously funny.” Scotsman
“A rip-roaring raconteur, evoking a Larkin-esque sense of commuter belt ennui” Metro
“Cool poems.” Patti Smith
“This is a more grown-up version of Wright’s previous shows, without compromising on any of his signature vitality and humour. Stage Talk Magazine
“The entire show was a marvellous collation of relevance, sentiment and punch, perfectly intertwined with the warm atmosphere to generate a magical evening of literature and laughs. Be prepared to have expectations blown out of the water and find words that will hook in your mind long after you’ve left; a truthful simple spectacle.” Everything Theatre
“On just the second date of a long tour we enjoyed a sustained and polished performance from a man at the top of his game. Keep your eyes and ears open – Luke Wright has a lot more to say!” Norwich Eye
“Wright is a phenomenal poet and performer” The Play’s The Thing
”The Toll is a razor dipped in sugar: Although Wright’s heart might have taken a battering of late, it is clear that it is still generous, and the caustic line of humour that runs right through it like a black thread, only adds to its character.” Norwich Radical
