Flamboyant, political and riotously funny, Luke Wright creates inventive poems with loads of heart.
Part Essex wide boy, part dandy fop, he writes from the sidelines about small-town tragedies and national farce, then performs his work with snarl and spit.
Since 2006 Luke has written and performed nine spoken word shows and two verse plays, touring them to some of the top literary and arts festivals. Alongside his own shows, Luke is John Cooper-Clark’s regular support act, performing at venues such as The London Palladium and The Palace Theatre in Manchester. He’s won a 4Talent Award, a Stage Award, a Fringe First Award, a Saboteur Award, and a NFBC short film competition at the Cannes Film Festival.
Enjoy an afternoon 'Down the Pub' with Luke Wright this autumn. This performance is free to attend, with donations to Artsreach gratefully received. After the show why not dine at the Red Lion? An extensive menu is available and dinner is served from 6pm.
