Luke Wright: Poet Laureate
Wrighty’s chucking his hat in the ring to be the next Poet Laureate.
Following a sell-out run in Edinburgh, Luke Wright hits the road with the show the critics are calling his best yet.
With a new Poet Laureate due to be announced in 2019 Wrighty’s chucking his hat in the ring. He’s on a mission to write poems to unite a nation divided by austerity and Brexit. Can it be done? Can one poet ever really represent an entire nation?
Big-hearted and quick witted, Wright’s poems have been lauded by everyone from Patti Smith to The Libertines. A Fringe First and Stage Award-winner, Wright is truly a wordsmith and raconteur at the top of his game.
In 2019 he celebrates the twentieth anniversary of his first gig. So maybe he can pull it off?
