Luke Wright: The Toll

After the Fringe First winning success of What I Learned From Johnny Bevan, Luke Wright is back with a stunning new spoken word show - The Toll.

Fresh from supporting John Cooper Clarke on tour, Wright is here to subject the English language to a series of degrading yet delightful tricks, all for your amusement.

The poems in The Toll tour the flat-roofed pubs and half-bought couches of Brexit Britain. They struggle with doubt, duty and a score of half-cut nights spent shouting impotently at Question Time.

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

“Timely, touching and consistently funny.” Scotsman

“A rip-roaring raconteur, evoking a Larkin-esque sense of commuter belt ennui” Metro

We are excited to welcome Luke back to Ventnor Exchange after his show What I learned from Johnny Bevan last year went down a storm!

Under 25's get in for £5!
