LUKE WRIGHT

Flamboyant, political and riotously funny, Luke Wright creates inventive poems with loads of heart. Part Essex wide boy, part dandy fop, he writes from the sidelines about small-town tragedies and national farce, then performs his work with snarl and spit. Since 2006 he has written and performed ten spoken word shows and two verse plays, touring them to literary and arts festivals from Australia to Scotland via Hong Kong and Bruges.He’s won a 4Talent Award, a The Stage award, a Edinburgh Festival Fringe Award, a Saboteur Award, and had his work featured on the BBC, Sky Arts & Channel 4. “One of the funniest and most brilliant poets of his generation.” – Johann Hari, The Independent
