Spoken Word The Sherling Studio


Following the unprecedented multi award winning success of his first stage play, What I Learned From Johnny Bevan, one of the UK’s favourite and most accessible poets, Luke Wright, returns to his roots performing poems from his new book 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. Wright makes poetry accessible, normal even.

Spend an evening with a gifted and compelling raconteur at the top of his game, as he spits out visceral, inventive verse that sweats, bleeds and sings
