Event description

Description

Ralph Dartford presents a brand-new spoken word story about England, people trafficking, addiction, the causes of addiction, and the recovery from its destructive forces.

Written and performed by A Firm of Poets founder, Ralph Dartford, and based on his own true experience of addiction. An unflinching, sometimes funny confessional that might change your mind about everything you thought you knew about addiction.

Ralph's work has appeared in the Guardian, Pulp Faction, Stirring (US), Word Life and London Territories amongst many other publications. His first volume of poetry, ‘Cigarettes, Beer and Love’ received wide acclaim, and his second, ‘Recovery Songs will be published in autumn 2019.'


A brilliantly written piece most writers push themselves to imagine but delivered with the grinding wide eyed sincerity of genuine first-hand experience.' Thick Richard‘

Great support.’ Kate Tempest‘

This is proper, visceral stuff about real life. Poetry for the rest of us.’ Luke Wright
