Following many appearances on national radio and TV, Luke Wright is acknowledged as one of Britain’s top stand-up poets and one of the principle architects of the now thriving spoken word scene.

Just before Christmas he opened for The Libertines on tour and with Dr John Cooper Clarke.

He brings the UK tour of his new verse play The Remains of Logan Dankworth to Constantine's Tolmen Centre on Friday, January 24 (7.30pm).

Luke said: "The Remains of Logan Dankworth is certainly the most complex and mature thing I’ve written so far. As with my previous plays there is a personal story occurring against the backdrop of political upheaval.

"Previously I’ve dealt with Thatcherism and the legacy of New Labour, this is bang up to date and features a man approaching middle age excited by the febrile nature of British politics while trying to hold things together at home."

Luke is a poet and theatre maker who has been writing and performing his work for 20 years, touring all over the world.

Flamboyant, political and riotously funny, Luke’s published work includes two full collections, three pamphlets and the two verse plays.

He is the winner of a Fringe First, a stage award for acting excellence and two Saboteur Awards. The Remains of Logan Dankworth will be published in book form by Penned in the Margins, in early February.

For 11 years he co-programmed the Poetry Arena at Latitude, Europe’s largest poetry gig and now curates poetry for Edinburgh International Book Festival.

The Remains of Logan Dankworth is directed by Alex Thorpe who also directed Frankie Vah and has three Royal Shakespeare Company productions under his belt. Music for the show was written and performed by musician and writer Polly Wright.

The third in his trilogy of plays looking at the British political landscape of the last 25 years and its impact on ordinary people.

The Remains of Logan Dankworth is a fast-paced and thrilling verse play about marriage and political upheaval in the age of Brexit, told in blistering verse by one of the UK’s most celebrated poets.

Luke is a brilliantly entertaining and erudite interviewee and would love to talk to you about the show.
