Eat your heart out Simon Armitage

Following a sell-out run in Edinburgh, spoken word legend Luke Wright hits the road with his rousing new show, commissioned by the Inn Crowd. 

With the new Poet Laureate announced in 2019, Wrighty’s on a mission to write poems to unite a country divided by austerity and Brexit. Can it be done? Can one poet ever really represent an entire nation? Big-hearted and quick witted, Wright’s poems have been lauded by everyone from Patti Smith to The Libertines. A Fringe First and Stage Award winner, Wright is truly a wordsmith and raconteur at the top of his game. 

"Fierce, wistful, romantic and witty by turns, this is a sensational hour of poetry."

The Stage ***** 

"Pulsating poetic story-telling."
