About this Event

This award-winning wordsmith is on a mission to write poems to unite a nation divided by austerity and Brexit. Can it be done? Can one poet ever really represent an entire nation?

8pm | £10

There was a collective gnashing of teeth and beating of breasts across the land when Wrighty didn’t get the royal nod to take up the position of Poet Laureate this year. Still, he’s an irrepressible sort of chap, so he’s bought his own sherry and hit the road with the show the critics are calling his best yet.

Luke Wright is on a mission to write poems to unite a nation divided by austerity and Brexit. Can it be done? Can one poet ever really represent an entire nation?

Big-hearted and quick witted, Wright’s poems have been lauded by everyone from Patti Smith to The Libertines. A Fringe First and Stage Award winner, Wright is truly a wordsmith and raconteur at the top of his game.

“Fierce, wistful, romantic and witty by turns, this is a sensational hour of poetry.”

★★★★★ The Stage

“One of the funniest and most brilliant poets of his generation.”

The Independent

“Cool poems.”

Patti Smith
