On Stage

The Listening Post


Following the smash hit success of his Silver Jubilee show (“the best thing he’s done and that’s saying something.” Telegraph) Luke Wright returns with a new set poems that get to grips with the idea of JOY.

The French novelist Henry de Montherlant said that “happiness writes white” but Wright’s not exactly starting with a blank page. The poet writes urgently and warmly about family, fatherhood, and the joy of language itself. We might have to go down to come up, but we’ll get there in the end. Come let a little joy into your life with a raconteur and wordsmith at the top of his game.

“Honesty, humour, ire and wonder. He is at the peak of his powers.” The Stage
