In his multiple award-winning poetry performance, which had a 3-week sold out run in London’s West End, Luke Wright brings alive a story of shattered friendship, class ceilings, and the hollow reality of the New Labour dream.
At university, the whip-smart, mercurial Johnny Bevan saves Nick – smashing his comfortable, middle class bubble and firing him up about politics, music and literature. Twenty years later, as their youthful dreams disintegrate with the social justice they hoped for, can Nick save Johnny from himself?
Luke Wright delivers a hurricane of a performance that would be a shame to miss!
“A pulsating piece of poetic storytelling” – ★★★★ Lyn Gardner, The Guardian.
