An award-winning poet will take his live show to Clevedon this month.

Following the success of his first stage show, What I Learned From Johnny Bevan, Luke Wright returns for another 25-date tour of the UK – inlcuding a night at Theatre Shop in Queens Square.

His poetry has been praised for its accessibility for audiences across the world, which has allowed him to perform in such far-flung destinations as Australia and China.

The Toll explores the range of emotions felt by people up and down the country as they come to terms with Brexit.

Luke said: “I wrote these poems over the past three years.

“There’s a range of subject matter including lots of stuff about family, about England, and about heartache.

“It’s about the toll that life takes on you, but also about duty and trying to do the right thing.

“As ever in my work, politics and social issues lurk in the background ready to pounce.”

Wright has also appeared in verse documentaries on Channel 4 while his poems are regularly read on BBC radio.

He also released the highly-rated collection Mondeo Man in 2013, and curates the spoken word lineups at Latitude Festival, Festival Number 6 and the Edinburgh International Book Festival.

The Toll By Luke Wright will be performed at Theatre Shop at 7.30pm on September 23, and is recommended for people aged 14 and over.

Tickets, priced £11, are available from www.tobaccofactorytheatres.com
