Luke Wright presents The Toll

21st September, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm


Following his critically acclaimed tour of ‘What I Learned From Johnny Bevan’, award winning poet Luke Wright returns to the Barbican Theatre stage with his new show ‘The Toll’ on Thursday 21 September 2017.

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

The poems in The Toll tour the flat-roofed pubs and half-bought couches of Brexit Britain, and even go back in time to London’s gas-lit 19th century streets. Meet Edward Dando the oyster-guzzling hero of the late-Georgian broadsides; witness Iain Duncan Smith being taken to pieces in a poem that utilises only one type of vowel; and raise a warm can of Stella with the Essex campers who spot a lion prowling the marshes.

Luke Wright brings ‘The Toll’ to Barbican Theatre on Thursday 21 September, 7:30pm. Tickets £11 / £13 (inc booking fee)
