The Toll by Luke Wright

After the Fringe First winning success of 'What I Learned From Johnny Bevan', Luke Wright is back to subject the English language to a series of degrading new tricks, all for your amusement

18th Nov
8pm | £10

Featuring a selection of poems from The Toll (Penned In The Margins, 2017) this show tours the flat-roofed pubs and half-bought couches of Brexit Britain. It struggles 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.

“Visceral, poignant, and riotously funny.”
Scotsman

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

“Cool poems.”
Patti Smith

“On just the second date of a long tour we enjoyed a sustained and polished performance from a man at the top of his game. Keep your eyes and ears open – Luke Wright has a lot more to say!”
★★★★★ Norwich Eye

“The Toll is a razor dipped in sugar: Although Wright’s heart might have taken a battering of late, it is clear that it is still generous, and the caustic line of humour that runs right through it like a black thread, only adds to its character.”
Norwich Radical
