Summary

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

Luke Wright delivers a multi award winning hurricane of a performance. With humour and humanity he takes British politics of years recently passed head on, challenging that period of the rise of New Labour and David Cameron, and the abandonment of those left behind.

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?
