Live at the Quarry: Luke Wright – Come! Come On! Meet Me!

11/07/2021

The Old Town Quarry

From £5 (within group booking)

Referred to as “The bard of lockdown” (Telegraph), British poet Luke Wright emerges from his enforced retirement with an infectious thirst for life. But what kind of life, and does it bear any resemblance to the one he had before? Set against the backdrop of pandemic politics, ageing parents and an endless droning culturewar, this powerful performance promises to resonate on all levels.

“Luke Wright is one of the greats. A poetic pugilist, Beguiling and hypnotic.” Carl Barât

“His performances rumble with rage, passion and humour.” The Guardian

“Fierce, wistful, romantic and witty by turns, this is a sensational hour of poetry.”
