Luke Wright -The Remains of Logan Dankworth – TONIGHT

I believed that Fukayama line: the end of history.   But History didn’t end, did it? 

Logan Dankworth, columnist and Twitter warrior, grew up romanticising the political turmoil of the 1980s. Now, as the EU referendum looms he is determined to be in the fray of the biggest political battle for years. 

Meanwhile, Logan’s wife Megan wants to leave London to better raise their daughter. As tensions rise at home and across the nation, something is set to be lost forever. 

 The third of Luke Wright’s trilogy of political verse plays looks at trust and privilege in the age of Brexit, performed in Wright’s breath-taking verse.


Praise for Frankie Vah (2017/18)

“Wright is a clever playwright and a charismatic performer … Frankie  Vah is all the richer for its political and poetical layers … Wright succeeds in finding new and beautiful ways of expressing the everyday.”  The Guardian

“Brilliant script … sheer linguistic virtuosity and sweaty magnetism.”  Time Out

“It’s absolutely mesmerising: the lyrical, musical push and pull, the perfect detonation of sharp consonants and stretchy vowels.” Exeunt

Praise for What I Learned from Johnn Bevan (2015/16)

“Pulsating piece of poetic storytelling” Lyn Gardner, Guardian

“Blistering … a story of our times … a strikingly assured performance of a compelling piece of writing.” The Scotsman
