Luke Wright's Silver Jubilee

About

Edinburgh Fringe Smash Hit - Wright tries to celebrate but ends up taking a deep dive into himself and the England that raised him, with new poems on class, love and adoption

7.30pm | £14

Crack out the bunting! It's Luke Wright's Silver Jubilee.

Over twenty-five years, Luke Wright has built up a reputation for being one of Britain's most popular live poets. He has won an unprecedented four Saboteur Awards (national awards for spoken word), a Stage Award, and a Fringe First. He's sold out shows across the world and regularly tours with John Cooper Clarke and The Libertines.

This show debuted to a packed arena at Latitude Festival before a sell out run at the Edinburgh Fringe where it was the toast of the critics.

"This is the best thing that poet Luke Wright has done, which is saying something."
★★★★★ The Telegraph

This year, thwarted in his attempts to hold a street party by the philistines on the council and unable to shift the over-ordered commemorative plates, Wright does what a poet does best, and takes a deep dive into himself. What follows is his most confessional show to date.

"Breathtaking… with a sharpness and wisdom that lifts the soul, and soothes the battered heart."
★★★★ The Scotsman

Wright was adopted as a baby and grew up believing that his adoption "wasn't a big thing." But one night he idly stumbled across his birth mother on Facebook. This window to a world that might have been his has thrown up deep questions about privilege, familial love, and destiny.

"Luke is on fire! A poetic interrogation of himself, who he is and where he is from that leaves you tenderised and bruised and with a little something in your eye."
Mark Thomas
